Native Species Keeper Talks
We’re working hard with our partners to bring the critically endangered Regent-honeyeater back from the brink. Learn about this unique species from Keeper Kara.
The Greater Bilby is a small native marsupial that is very unique. Did you know they have a backward facing pouch to ensure it doesn’t fill with dirt when the female Bilby is digging? Taronga Western Plains Zoo’s 110ha Sanctuary is home to a population of Greater Bilbies that are part of a conservation breeding program aimed at seeing Greater Bilbies return to the wild.
