Wildlife Trade Appeal
Our Australian wildlife has suffered significant loses over the last summer season in drought and bushfire, with over a billion animals lost. On top of that the number of live animals seized by the Australian Border Force has tripled since 2017.
The illegal wildlife trade is a really important and urgent issue that is happening in our own backyard right now.
Your gift today can help keep Australian animals safe and protect them from the ever-growing threat of the illegal wildlife trade.
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
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.
Fundraising is one of the most powerful and gratifying ways that you can help us secure a future for wildlife. With your support, we can breed threatened species, carry on our vital scientific research and support conservation programs across the globe.
Major donations help the Taronga Foundation care for the animals in our Zoos and achieve excellence in wildlife conservation, research, education and breeding programs for endangered wildlife in Australia and overseas.
