Building a Better Zoo

The Master Plan for Taronga and Taronga Western Plains Zoos is a 12-year program to revolutionise facilities at both Zoos and expand their ability to participate in world-class conservation, education and wildlife care programs.

Started in 2000, the plan is the most comprehensive rebuilding of the Zoos since Taronga opened in 1916 and Western Plains Zoo in 1977.
