Taronga TV

Over the coming weeks Taronga will be bringing its two beautiful zoos directly into your living room! Tune in daily to see your favourite animals, meet our friendly keepers and learn what goes on behind the scenes at Taronga while our zoos are temporarily closed.

Want to support us? Our animals need your help. We have made the difficult but right decision to close our two zoos during the COVID-19 crisis, but our animals still need the food and care our dedicated team always give them. If you can, please support with a donation, every donation will help no matter how big or small.

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!

Capybara Cam

NEW! Check in on what the world’s largest rodents get up to and say hello to the five brothers in our charismatic Capybara herd: Pedro, Sanchez, Guillermo, Carlos and Rodney!

Otter Cam

NEW! Tune in live as our otter-ly adorable otter family playfully swim and chase each other - navigating logs, rocks and water that mimic their natural habitats.

Elephant Cam

Wondering what mischief cheeky Asian Elephant calf Jai Dee is causing in the elephant herd today? Watch him with mum and aunt as they graze, swim and play.

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

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.

Baby Platypus update

For many of the animals who receive treatment at our Wildlife Hospital, recovery can be a long process. This adorable juvenile platypus was admitted back in February and has spent the past few months receiving veterinary care. Watch as she receives a check up!

Nala gets an ultrasound

Our Senior Veterinarian Larry recently stopped by the marine precinct to perform an ultrasound on pregnant Australian Sea Lion Nala, and after some splashing around and a bucket full of fish, he was able to determine that both mum and pup are doing well!

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.

Plains-wanderer chicks

In early March, we welcomed two critically endangered Plains-wanderer chicks at Taronga Western Plains Zoo, the first born in Dubbo, to the conservation breeding program to save this species from extinction.This important work is made possible thanks to the support of the ARA group.

Bilby baby boom

Extinct in NSW for more than 100 years, in October last year Zookeepers from Taronga Western Plains Zoo Dubbo released several Greater Bilbies into the Taronga Sanctuary, a 110-hectare predator-free breeding site at Taronga Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo, with a view to saving the species.
