Take a rare glimpse inside Taronga’s Wild Life
Over one million people visit Taronga and Taronga Western Plains Zoos every year, but they rarely see what goes on behind-the-scenes to care for some of the world’s most endangered animals.
For the past few months our keepers, veterinary teams and researchers have had camera crews following their every move. They’ve even worn cameras on their hats, clipped to their chests and installed in their work areas to give you an ‘access all areas’ pass into their wild life.
From the Cambodian jungles to the rugged terrain of the Aussie bush, Wild Life at the Zoo takes you beyond Taronga’s gates, showing you the realities of global breeding programs and animal care. You’ll see the very moment endangered animals take their first breath, whilst the cameras capture all aspects of daily life at Taronga with unprecedented access.
