Taronga Zoo's General Manager Wildlife Conservation, Will Meikle, with 18 other zoo keepers and managers riding from Sydney to the Gold Coast for Australasia's zoos and aquariums to raise awareness of wildlife in National Threatened Species Week. Catch his regular blogs over coming days:
Taronga Zoo’s three Bilbies, Dougal, Sparkie and Yippie, are revealing the shy ways of one of Australia’s least seen mammals to some lucky zoo visitors.
With the weather getting warmer, both the elephant calves have been going into the pool more often. They’re playing really well together and Pathi Harn tries to clamber onto Luk Chai’s back. It’s just as well that Luk Chai’s trunk functions well as a snorkel.
At the Taronga Zoo Free Flight Bird Show, we not only give our visitors an insight into the amazing life of birds, but our birds also help contribute towards conservation of species in the wild.
Beaver-tails, funnel cakes, baseball, peppers (capsicums!) and skunks. None of these were part of my world until recently, some of these weren’t even part of my vocabulary and in retrospect I think I still wish funnel cakes wasn’t.
There’s good news to report from the bird-watchers monitoring the Zoo-bred Regent Honeyeaters in Chiltern, Victoria. We released the birds over four months ago and there are still plenty of them around.
The carnivore keepers are again getting to normal with their animals in their exhibits. The two Snow Leopards, Sabu and Kamala, are the 5 year old offspring of Samarra, the breeding female which stayed in the usual exhibit during the work.
Taronga Zoo is pleased to have retained the position as Sydney's most popular experience for the fourth year in a row.
Kambiri, our little pygmy hippo calf, is progressing in leaps and bounds!! In just over a month, she has more than tripled her birth weight, weighing in at 16.5kg.
Wearing green Taronga shirts and Ocean Rescue caps, Taronga staff took to the streets of Sydney yesterday in the 2010 City 2 Surf.
