Our Legacy Species
In 2016, Taronga launched its legacy for the future and for the wild. We’re dedicating the next 10 years to the conservation of 10 critical species. Five are native to Australia, like the Platypus and the Bilby, and five are on the brink of extinction in Sumatra – a biodiversity hotspot of critical natural importance right threats on Australia’s doorstep.
There are many threats facing their future - from plastic pollution, to poaching, habitat loss and climate change. But we believe that with your help, every species can not only survive but thrive. Help us in our lifetime commitment to conserve these 10 precious species for generations to come.
