It's not every day that you come face to face with Australia's largest bird of prey, but a group of kids from our Zoo Adventures program can now boast that they got up-close to this striking new Zoo arrival.
As one of Taronga Zoo’s Indigenous Discovery Hosts, I have been given the amazing privilege of co-presenting a specially written and adapted Taronga Free Flight Bird Show for NAIDOC to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and culture.
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.
