The east Australian Humpback whale migration has begun and Taronga’s Marine Mammal Department has been fortunate enough to get amongst it, thanks to an exciting new partnership with Captain Cook Cruises.
To celebrate National Reconciliation Week, 15 staff from Taronga Western Plains Zoo’s Education team participated in Traditional Indigenous Games training through a program called ‘Yulunga’ run by the Australian Sports Commission.
A fire broke out in a service building on the perimeter of Taronga Zoo overnight.
Fire Brigade crews attended and extinguished the fire before 3am.
No people or animals were injured in the fire.
Preliminary investigations have found no suspicious circumstances.
