The Taronga Foundation raised over $340,000 for tigers last Friday at the annual Zoofari fundraiser in a spectacular Marquee at Taronga Zoo overlooking the Harbour.
On Sunday 7 November, keepers arrived at work to find a small surprise on the Bison exhibit, a new-born male calf.

Taronga Western Plains Zoo invites everyone to celebrate the opening of the Zoo’s new open access Visitor Plaza at a FREE Wild Day Out community event on Sunday 28 November 2010 from 11am – 3pm.
We officially named our calf today, “Tuk Ta” (pronounced ‘ took tuh’) it means ‘doll’ in Thai.
Earlier this year I travelled to Mongolia to monitor released captive bred Przewalski Horses (Takhi) at Hustai National Park.
The new calf loves being hosed so much we thought we would encourage her to go for a swim in the waterfall pool.
All the elephants were dust bathing around the big dirt mound in the top paddock after their baths this morning. The boys were playing and having fun when the new calf decided to join in too.
Our new calf readily walked onto the scales this morning and she is still her birth weight of 120kg.
