Securing a shared future for wildlife and people Watch the Video ▶
It's hard to believe that Taronga’s young Red Panada Seba will have his first birthday on the 6th December!
Mosman High School students have been giving an Aussie Battler a big go! Thirty Year 8 students from Mosman High Schools Academic Extension Class have been busy researching, creating and teaching others about the plight of the Native Bush Rat, better known as the Bogul.
Training a parrot can be a lot of fun, and not all that difficult if you know a little about bird behaviour.
It’s been a huge week of tussles and power struggles at Taronga’s Meerkat Desert that eventually ousted our alpha female!
Our Zoo has some brand-new beautiful sculptures in the refurbished Main Entry Plaza. Together they interpret Saltwater culture of the Cammeraigal; acknowledge Aboriginal connections to Country and reinforce the importance of wildlife conservation. The evocative metal sculptures have been created in collaboration with Aboriginal artists from NSW, Tasmania and the Northern Territory. It’s worth visiting the Zoo just to see these new artworks, especially as they are in the new free-entry zone.
Sun Bear Keeper Lesley has been helping out at the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre at Malaysia, Borneo. In this photo Lesley is walking with cub Mary. The cub was a family pet, but Lesley reports that Mary is a good candidate for release back to the wild as she’s still young and learning how to be a bear. Read Lesley's story on her adventures here.
Last week the Education Centre’s very special galah, Mulga, turned 20. Mulga is my favourite animal at the Zoo. Why do I adore her? So many reasons!
Everyday the chimps surprise us with just how intelligent they are which can make them quite challenging to manage as they continually try to outsmart their keepers.
This breeding season looks to be the best yet at Taronga Zoo for our Little Penguin population.
Rainy days are a little different for us at the Bird Show, because it means our shows might be cancelled.
