Our Actions

Taronga has an absolute commitment to the conservation of wildlife in Australia and around the world.

We are committed to the conservation of native species, with active involvement in breed and release programs, habitat recovery and the rehabilitation and release of injured or orphaned wildlife.

We are committed to the preservation of our Legacy Species, ten critical species found in Australia and Sumatra.

And we are committed to protecting and sustaining wildlife in their natural habitats, and provide support for work in the field through national and international conservation partnerships, field grants and fellowships.
