Securing a shared future for wildlife and people Watch the Video
I’m visiting the Kibale Fuel Wood Project, which is led by New Nature Foundation directors Rebecca Goldstone and Michael Stern, and has been supported by Taronga through its Field Conservation Program since 2011
Recently keepers at Taronga Western Plains Zoo welcomed Tambo, a one year old male Bongo, to Dubbo from Taronga Zoo, Sydney. Tambo has come to Dubbo to join resident Bongo bachelor Kulungu, who is four years old, and has been at the Zoo since 2011.
Keepers are seeing a changing of the guard within the Meerkat group at Taronga Western Plains Zoo, as the 11 year old dominant female Umi starts to show her age.
Over the last 10 days 77 birds bred and reared at Taronga were released into Chiltern–Mount Pilot National Park in north-eastern Victoria to bolster the dwindling population of wild birds.
Keepers at Taronga’s Backyard to Bush would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Easter holidays!
What many don't realise is that giraffe numbers are drastically dropping in the wild, with a decline of up to 40% in the last 10 years.
Today was the day everyone had been waiting for.
Keepers got up early to give the birds a small amount of fresh wombaroo nectar before their big day.
As part of the next stage of Taronga Zoo’s much anticipated new development for Sumatran Tigers, today we had to say ‘see you later’ to our much-loved male tiger Sakti as he embarked on his journey to Taronga Western Plains Zoo.
When you head down to Victoria you don't expect the diverse range of native wildlife.
