Spring has come around once more, bringing with it some beautiful sunny days and clear blue skies, stimulating much activity and excitement amongst the chimp group. It is hard to believe that a year has passed since the chimpanzee group was relocated to their new Sanctuary!
Keepers at Taronga Western Plains Zoo are excited that the White Rhinos are now back on display following scheduled maintenance to their exhibit.
Taronga’s Wildlife Hospital sees some very unusual road accident victims. Possums, wombats and even echidnas often fall victim to cars when crossing busy roads and end up at Taronga for care.
Taronga’s Mosman Zoo is lucky enough to have Sooty Owl chicks to call our own! These beautiful young birds hatched almost two months ago.
Taronga’s Red Pandas are quite a sight: with thick russet fur, striped bushy tails, pointed noses and soft white ears, they are highly unusual creatures! Native to Nepal, China, India and Bhutan, Red Pandas are often found at high altitudes, inhabiting dense bamboo forests in these regions. This vulnerable species is difficult to spot in the wild, so Taronga is fortunate to have two of these beautiful creatures living in their bushy exhibit, next to the Great Southern Oceans precinct.
What's your poison? The Inland Taipan is the world's most toxic snake - and there are four of them on display at Taronga Zoo.
When you think of seals, do you think of big animals casually lounging on rocks in the sun, not moving an inch except for the occasional jaw-cracking yawn? Well, once you’ve visited Taronga’s Ausgrid Seal Show, you will think otherwise.
A word from the Director of Taronga this World Rhino Day. Did you know Taronga works in Asia and Africa to help rhinoceros?

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.
