The Taronga Foundation was created in 2000 to give our supporters an easy way to get involved in our work and support animal conservation, education and research.

Thank you for your interest in supporting Taronga's conservation work. Unfortunately, we are experiencing technical issues with our donations system, but expect to have this issue resolved shortly! Keep checking back for updates.

African Lion Appeal

African Lion Appeal

Lions have vanished from 95% of their historic range in Africa in the last hundred years and are now extinct in 26 African countries. If their numbers drop any further, they’ll be on the slide toward extinction. Due to poaching and shrinking habitats, the lions of Africa’s savannah are dying out at a shocking rate.

Please donate generously to support the conservation work that is helping save magnificent lions from extinction.

Our animals need your help

With a heavy heart we have made the difficult but right decision to close our two zoos during the COVID-19 crisis, but our animals still need the food and care our dedicated team always give them.

If you can please support with a donation today – no matter how big or small, it will make a difference and feed one of our many special residents.

Your thoughtful gift will feed and care for your favourite animals and every donation will make a difference.

Wildlife Recovery Appeal

Wildlife Recovery Appeal

It has been a challenging year so far for Australia. Our community, wildlife and habitat has been severely damaged by catastrophic bushfires and drought during summer and now we are facing a worldwide health epidemic. At Taronga, we hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and well.

During this time, our Wildlife Hospitals in Sydney and Dubbo are still continuing to treat and care for a record amount of sick and injured wildlife. Right now, where many basic resources are scarce, we need your help more than ever.

With all fires in NSW now thankfully under control, we are only now getting a clear picture of the damage to animal populations and habitat. Things are looking dire for a number of species.

Many of the surviving animals need ongoing medical care and rehabilitation as their wild populations have been nearly decimated.

By supporting us today you can continue the long road to recovery for our precious wildlife.

Wildlife Crisis Appeal

Catastrophic bushfires and ongoing drought have ravaged our beloved country. These fires, combined with the ongoing long-term drought, have decimated already fragile animal populations. 

The number of animals believed to have perished as a result of these catastrophic conditions is estimated more than 1 billion with fires alone, many more when the effects of the drought are considered.

Wildlife is facing a crisis, they need your help now more than ever before. Please donate urgently today to help save our wildlife from the devastation of the bushfires and drought.
