Animal live-cams

We’ve set up 24/7 live-streaming cameras at Taronga Zoo Sydney so you can enjoy your favourite animals at any time of day.

Struggling to see the animals? The angles you’re seeing are just one section of a habitat, so they might be exploring (or sleeping!). We offer our animals the freedom to move around their enclosure and display natural behaviours, so if you can’t see them right now, check back a little later!

Lion Cam

Watch as Taronga Zoo Sydney's two-year-old male lions, Lwazi and Ato, take their place as kings of the African Savannah exhibit.

Elephant Cam

Ever wondered what the Asian Elephant herd get up to when you're not here? Watch as they graze, swim and play.

You can support them by becoming a Taronga Zoo Parent.

Did you know? At certain times of the day the tigers move back and forth repeatedly in one area of their habitat. This is often in anticipation of their upcoming meal, excitement over a new tiger in the habitat space next to them, or during breeding season!

Tiger Cam 1

Spend some time with our Sumatran Tigers. The three cubs are especially playful, you might catch them chasing, playing, lounging by the water or jumping on the Jeep! 

Tiger Cam 2

See the Sumatran Tigers from a completely different perspective. You might find the three cheeky cubs climbing and lounging in the big fig tree or cooling off in the water.

From our Wildlife Hospital

Ever wondered what goes on at a vet hospital in a Zoo? Taronga's two Wildlife Hospitals at Sydney and Dubbo play an important role in maintaining the health of the animals in our care and in treating and rehabilitating wildlife brought in by the public. Witness the amazing behind-the-scenes work involved in animal health check-ups, procedures, consultations and more.

Otter health check

Sati just had is first health check! Regular health checks are an everyday occurrence at the Taronga Wildlife Hospital. After a short and sweet general check-up, our youngest small-clawed otter Sati was back with his family and causing a ruckus in no time.

Yellow-bellied Glider health check

This beautiful yellow-bellied glider was recently treated at the Taronga Wildlife Hospital after it was found suffering cuts inhibiting its ability to glide.

Conservation programs

Taronga has an absolute commitment to the conservation of wildlife in Australia and around the world. From the conservation of native species with active involvement in breed and release programs, habitat recovery, animal rehabilitation and release - to the preservation of our Legacy Species.

Tune in to our stories as we dedicate to protecting and sustaining wildlife in their natural habitats.

Bilby release

Earlier this month we released zoo-bred Greater Bilbies back into the wild at Sturt National Park as part of the Wild Deserts project. A truly historic moment for Taronga as Greater Bilbies have been extinct in this part of NSW for more than a century, and now 10 Greater Bilbies are roaming the large feral-animal free area!

Saving the Bellinger River Turtle

In 2015, the critically endangered Bellinger River Turtle was almost lost forever when a catastrophic event occurred, wiping out 90% of the population. 

Over the past five years, Taronga Zoo has been working alongside NSW DPIE and other conservation partners to breed healthy individuals to be released back into the wild.
