We are committed to creating a shared future for wildlife and people. Through our efforts we protect endangered species, increase understanding of wildlife and inspire community action.
Our commitment to conservation extends beyond our Zoo boundaries and Australia, reaching continents around the globe.

Working in partnerships with other zoos and organisations, Taronga is actively participating in breeding programs for Australian native animals, such as the Brush-Tailed Rock Wallaby of which there are only estimated to be 15-30,000 left in the wild.
Taronga and Taronga Western Plains Zoos work cooperatively with conservation organisations across the globe to carry out in situ conservation programs.
We have exceptional expertise in our Zoos, but we also need help from like-minded organisations, community groups and conservation experts to protect and regenerate habitats, stop poaching and trafficking of wildlife and find solutions to living with wildlife in local communities.
Our Conservation Partnerships work with wildlife conservation organisations and communities to develop ways to protect priority species and habitats, facilitate ways that people can live and share environments with wildlife and foster community and government support for conservation.
Positive Actions that can help your environment. With so many people in the world, the way we live has the potential to permanently impact wildlife, but with a little thought, you can make a positive difference.
Taronga Green Grant to fund the best and most innovative project to inspire Australian communities to live more sustainably and have a positive impact on our wildlife.
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.
Taronga’s Project Insitu is a highly successful community education program. It involves school children engaging their local community to take action in helping save a locally threatened species.
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.
