Securing a shared future for wildlife and people Watch the Video ▶
Teenagers took over Taronga’s Backyard to Bush environmental exhibit today when it showcased its innovative Boral Youth at the Zoo (YATZ) program, at the annual Eco Fair.
The other day I went out of the zoo to fly my female Peregrine Falcon, Nike. I’ve been training Nike since October now and everyday she’s becoming a more and more competent flier.
Today was an exciting day with the Black Rhino calf making her public debut, much to the delight of visitors in the Zoo. The calf, which we have affectionately nicknamed Effie, continues to go from strength to strength.
He is participating in the baths sessions with mum and actually likes getting scrubbed by the keepers
It’s recently come to the attention of the Bird Show crew that there is a wild Powerful Owl hanging out in the Zoo grounds. Powerful Owls are a vulnerable species often found in wooded areas, along the east coast of Australia, so to have one in the Sydney CBD area is amazing!
Can you help us name one of our Tasmanian Devils?
Pathi Harn has now managed to get all four of his legs up and over the edge of his paddling pool and is enjoying splashing around and playing with his beach ball.
One of the very best things about returning to work after a break on the Primate Department is the greeting you get from the Primates, especially the Chimps.
Over the last couple of days during morning bath times, we get out the baby pool for Pathi Harn. He doesn't get all the way in yet, but puts first one foot and then another into the water. He likes to swish it around with his trunk. We've brought Luk Chai into the barn to show Pathi Harn how much fun he can have in the bath. Luk Chai loves his bath.
‘Tiquie’ our Brazilian Tapir, the usually timid creatures of South American rainforests has stolen our hearts with her endearing and affectionate personality.
