Securing a shared future for wildlife and people Watch the Video
This has been an exciting week for our gorilla group as they were treated to some Christmas enrichment.
This year, Christmas has brought with it a bittersweet gift for Taronga Keeper Megan Flowers, who has been hand-raising an orphaned Red Kangaroo joey named ‘Penny’ for the past five months.
Taronga Western Plains Zoo will be holding an open day at the Wildlife Hospital on Wednesday 22 February 2012 where visitors can take a tour of the facility led by one of the Zoo’s vets.
Taronga’s Bird Keepers are celebrating the hatching of a very precious Andean Condor chick. The parents Connie and Bruce are the only breeding pair in Australasia and Bird Keepers were hopeful that this breeding season the pair would produce two offspring.
Taronga’s newest arrival explores the outside world for the very first time.
Snakes! Rock stars! Cockatoos! Harbour views!
Just recently, the team from the South Luangwa Conservation Society sighted a baby elephant trapped in the mud of the Kapani Lagoon with her mother, which had also got stuck trying to save her.
Taronga and Taronga Western Plains Zoos’ wonderful keepers care for amazing animals and get closer to them than anyone else.

Update on three year old White Rhino Macheo
Taronga Zoo advises that an item sold during the recent Vivid festival at the Zoo poses a potential hazard if broken apart.
As part of a 10 year Centenary Master Plan upgrade, Taronga has submitted plans to build an Australian Habitat Exhibit (phase 1) which includes an overnight conservation experience called the Taronga Wildlife Retreat.
Taronga Zoo would not dissect animals for public display. Taronga’s first concern is always for the welfare and dignity of the remarkable animals in our care.
