Taronga's mantra - For the Wild

 

For the wild

For its future

And it’s one you may not have contemplated before

One where the world’s wild animals don’t simply

Slip off the face of the earth, never to be seen again…

They make a comeback.

See, we believe that humans and animals can live together on

this planet. That we can share it.

That they can survive, and even thrive in the wild.

But until that day comes we will be right there working

towards it.

As a home

A school

A sanctuary

A nursery

A dating service

The first line of defence

And the last resort.

We are defenders, champions and ambassadors of the wild

And we’re on a mission that is of such critical importance it

can’t be allowed to fail.

Put simply: We can’t let it.

Taronga. For the wild.

Conservation Science

Taronga is dedicated to conservation of wildlife, not just of the species represented in its Zoos, but of every species that is in danger of extinction. Our Zoos’ diverse collections and research strengths, provides an opportunity to monitor changes in population and habitat viability and help provide information needed to guide management of habitats and wildlife.

Taronga's Wildlife Hospitals

The vets at Taronga’ Wildlife Hospitals are responsible for the health of the Zoos’ animals, as well as caring for injured and orphaned animals brought in by members of the public.
