Dubbo is now home to three stunning Black Rhino sculptures created by Sydney-based artists Gillie and Marc Schattner. Read more here.
It is not the first time that I've watched the seal show at Taronga Zoo. Every time I see the show, it refreshes my mind, but one thing is never changed: Taronga’s ambitious efforts for sustainable marine life.
Now they may be cute and small, but Meerkats are actually the most challenging group of animals our Carnivores keepers care for. They are powerful little critters with a very complex social structure. At Taronga’s Meerkat Desert the current alpha female is Nairobi who is very comfortable as leader of the mob. Read this story to learn about how meerkat hierarchy works and Taronga’s mob.
Southern Corroboree Frogs are on the brink of extinction. This year, no wild Corroboree Frog eggs were found during the annual census. Taronga is part of a program to arrest the decline of this vibrantly coloured frog which is dying out due to Chytrid Fungus.
Our bird keepers have released 38 Regent Honeyeaters in Chiltern, Victoria. This spectacular bird once inhabited four states, but due to habitat loss the population has dwindled to less than 1,500 birds. The release of these Zoo-bred birds is very important for the survival of the species. Read this story by Curator Judith Gillespie to learn about the intricacies of the program, including the playing recorded regents’ songs to the Zoo-bred birds.
Taronga would like to congratulate Melbourne Zoo on the recent birth of a male Eastern Bongo calf.
Over the last 24 hours, I’ve had lots of calls from people who have seen a news segment featuring me being bumped on the head by one of our Giraffes.
News just in from the field! This morning, the last of the Zoo bred Regent Honeyeaters "flew the coop.” They’re now flying around in the forest, wild as can be!
We're for the wild and today, we've just released 40 Regent Honeyeaters into the wild! They're a critically endangered species, but Taronga is working hard to safe guard a future for this native woodland bird.
