As the fireworks lit up the harbour to bring in the year 2000, something special was happening at Taronga.
Taronga’s charismatic 14 month-old chimpanzee, Fumo, has been impressing keepers and visitors with his dexterous use of tools at the termite mound, a behaviour not normally seen in chimps his age. True to his name, which means “spear” in Swahili, Fumo can be seen carefully manipulating branches and twigs into the mound to extract food like mashed sweet potato.
A Taronga Zoo keeper has found an unusual assistant to help out on her morning work rounds – an orphaned wombat joey named Chloe.
Taronga Zoo is celebrating the birth of its first-ever Bilby joeys. The births cap off an exciting year that saw The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge officially open the Zoo’s new Bilby exhibit named in honour of their son, Prince George.
