    Taronga aims to make a significant positive impact on the conservation of all species, particularly those under threat of extinction, including but not limited to those in its collections. Taronga and Taronga Western Plains Zoos’ diverse collections and research strengths, provides an opportunity to monitor changes in population and habitat viability and help provide information needed to guide management of habitats and wildlife.


    Healthy ecosystems provide food and materials for shelter, control pests, purify water, recycle nutrients to the soil and convert carbon gases to oxygen. These services are essential to our own health, the health of all other species, the global economy and our resilience to climate and environmental change.


    Taronga uses scientific excellence, collaboration and education to:

    • increase knowledge of basic animal biology and requirements
    • determine species role in habitats
    • identify threats to species health, well-being and conservation status
    • inform best practise for conservation action to preserve ecosystem health
