We introduced the Regent Honeyeaters from Adelaide to our Regents and now they are all living together.
Over the past few weeks we’ve noticed a big change in our youngest infant Mahali. He has started to branch away from his mum more and more, leaving her on one side of the exhibit while he’s off exploring his surroundings on the other side.
You may not be aware but weeds are a problem in Sydney. Why is it such a problem? Weeds are plants that are not native to the Australian bushland and are known to decrease the biodiversity of native flora and fauna. Weeds disrupt the growth of native plants and in turn remove the niches of our precious native animals.
Teenagers took over Taronga’s Backyard to Bush environmental exhibit today when it showcased its innovative Boral Youth at the Zoo (YATZ) program, at the annual Eco Fair.

He is participating in the baths sessions with mum and actually likes getting scrubbed by the keepers
It’s recently come to the attention of the Bird Show crew that there is a wild Powerful Owl hanging out in the Zoo grounds. Powerful Owls are a vulnerable species often found in wooded areas, along the east coast of Australia, so to have one in the Sydney CBD area is amazing!
Can you help us name one of our Tasmanian Devils?
