Zoo Life in Lockdown with Cameron Kerr
In our first Taronga Talks episode for 2020, Taronga Conservation Society Australia CEO Cameron Kerr reflects on the enormous change affecting us all during the COVID-19 pandemic. With over 5,000 animals to still care for, ongoing conservation work to help save endangered species and two beautiful Zoos to maintain, there's no such thing as ‘hibernation’ during lockdown at Taronga!
I think there’s a really exciting opportunity for us here in this crisis for anyone who’s involved with behaviour change or advocating to live and act slightly differently… We can still get the same joy out of life and still have a growing economy – one that is based on sustainability through growth.
How can you help?
- Want to support us? Our animals need your help. 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, every donation will help no matter how big or small
- Miss visiting Taronga Zoo and Taronga Western Plains Zoo? You can still connect with our amazing animals and learn about what goes on behind the scenes by tuning into Taronga TV!
