To celebrate National Reconciliation Week, 15 staff from Taronga Western Plains Zoo’s Education team participated in Traditional Indigenous Games training through a program called ‘Yulunga’ run by the Australian Sports Commission.
Today, 22nd March is International Biodiversity Day. Biodiversity is a very important aspect of wildlife conservation since it is the engine which keeps the natural world running, yet it is easy to overlook.
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.
