Today was an exciting day for the Zoo’s Education Centre as we were able to talk to school students in Alaska about Tasmanian Devils and the Zoo’s participation in the regional conservation program via satellite video conferencing.
Watching the ground-breaking Black Rhino research unfold last week, I was amazed at how the process of anesthetising a Rhino, moving her onto a makeshift table and then seeing the procedure take place to collect embryos was so seamlessly organised.
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.
