Securing a shared future for wildlife and people Watch the Video
It’s World Tapir Day...what I hear you ask? They are one of the most amazing animals that have roamed the earth for 34 million years. They’re literally living fossils, but most people have no idea what they are! On World Tapir Day, hear from two of our zoo keepers who devote their days to looking after these unique, but sadly threatened species.
One of the Zoo’s most recent mothers, Lilli Pilli the Koala is celebrating Mother’s Day for the first time.
The Zoo’s Project Platypus community conservation education program will start its second year with a field day for primary school students in May on the banks of the Macquarie River.
The Galapagos Tortoise at Taronga Western Plains Zoo are enjoying new surroundings in their night house after it underwent a major transformation recently thanks to the students and teachers at the Orana Juvenile Justice Centre, Lincoln School.
Two dead sea gannets, a dead pelican, a disfigured turtle and injured penguin. Not a great first sentence and not a great few weeks for marine wildlife.
After a long trip, new keepers, new language and a new home, Kibali has finally settled in, but there is a new girl knocking at his door.....
The Zoo’s Siamang Ape pair, Puteri and Saudara, have enjoyed some special Easter treats at the Zoo today.
There's a new kid on the block, well a new blackback gorilla. Kibali is 11years old and came from a zoo in France with his carer Jean Pascal on January 24th.
We’re delighted that a juvenile male gorilla named “Kibali” from France has joined our Western Lowland Gorilla group. ‘Kibali’ is an 11 year old adolescent, known as a blackback and in years to come will lead our gorilla family as a Silverback.
We don’t normally get the blues on our birthdays but this March our Asian Small-clawed Otters did.

Update on three year old White Rhino Macheo
Taronga Zoo advises that an item sold during the recent Vivid festival at the Zoo poses a potential hazard if broken apart.
As part of a 10 year Centenary Master Plan upgrade, Taronga has submitted plans to build an Australian Habitat Exhibit (phase 1) which includes an overnight conservation experience called the Taronga Wildlife Retreat.
Taronga Zoo would not dissect animals for public display. Taronga’s first concern is always for the welfare and dignity of the remarkable animals in our care.
