Animal live-cams

We’ve set up 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 exhibit and display natural behaviours, so if you can’t see them right now, check back a little later!

Please note, the live cams may not all be running at once due to maintenance. If your favourite live cam isn't available, why not check out one of the other incredible animal cams or catch up on the latest keeper chats below!

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.

You can support injured Aussie wildlife brought to the wildlife hospitals with a donation today.

Echidna rehab and release

Follow along this little echidna's journey after becoming victim to a car accident. After a stint at the Taronga Wildlife Hospital, he was on the path to recovery and ready for release!

It was Gunner the Tasmanian Devil's turn for a trip to the Taronga Wildlife Hospital when his keepers noticed he wasn't quite his normal self.

From our Conservation and Science programs

Taronga has an absolute commitment to science-based conservation of wildlife in Australia and around the world. From the conservation of native species with active involvement in conservation breeding for 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.

Saving the Bellinger River Turtle

Last year, in a milestone for this species, 32 critically endangered Bellinger River Snapping Turtles were released into the Bellinger River, where they can breed, flourish and the population can continue to recover. 

Saving the Northern Corroboree Frog

Step inside our brand new, purpose-built Northern Corroboree Frog breeding facility and learn a little about what it takes to save one of our most endangered species from the brink of extinction. 

Taronga has a specialist science team as well as scientifically trained staff across many other divisions. Our teams conduct vital work in the fields of health, ecology, behaviour, welfare, reproduction and genetics that supports wildlife, habitats and communities across the globe. Learn more about our work below.

Taronga's Australian Registry of Wildlife Health

Take a deep dive into this dedicated research program that investigates the health and disease of both free ranging and captive wildlife through both passive and active surveillance. The Australian Registry of Wildlife Health improves Australia's ability to detect and diagnose endemic, emerging and exotic diseases of wildlife that could have negative impacts on Australia's trade/economy, biodiversity, tourism and human health. Hear about the science used by Taronga and partners to save the Bellinger River Turtle from extinction, and some of the critical work the Registry undertakes to protect Australian wildlife.

Frog Conservation Biobanking

Our scientific team works collaboratively on programs that assess and maximise genetic diversity in zoo-based and wild populations to ensure populations remain resilient and have capacity to respond to threats like disease and climate change. Some of this genetic diversity is also stored in a frozen state in our CryoDiversity Banks which are analogous to plant seed banks. With funding from the Zoo and Aquarium Association Wildlife Conservation Fund’s Australian Bushfire Crisis grant, a team of scientists from Taronga have been working with partners on a project to cryopreserve the sperm of a number of threatened species, including the Booroolong Frog, to help ensure genetic diversity in breed for release programs.

Myall Lakes Dingo Project

Join us for the inside scoop on an exciting co-existence research project Taronga and partners are currently working on. This project aims to develop and test non-lethal tools for dingo management, and to further our understanding and appreciation of this iconic Australian carnivore.
