This little guy is the 13th Yellow-bellied Glider joey to be born here at Taronga Zoo! We have the world’s only successful breeding program for Yellow-bellied Gliders, who are losing their habitat due to bushland being broken up by development along Australia’s eastern seaboard. Our keeper Wendy is helping to hand raise this joey, who will grow up to play an important ambassador role helping to educate people about his remarkable species.

Renowned conservationist, Dr Jane Goodall visited Taronga Zoo’s chimpanzee group today, as she begins an Australian tour celebrating her 80th year. Taronga is a major supporter of Dr Goodall’s Tchimpounga Sanctuary in the Congo. She’ll be back at the Zoo tomorrow to attend a Youth Enviro Forum, where she’ll meet young people who’ve collected hundreds of used mobile phones to support the Jane Goodall Institute and Taronga’s ‘They’re Calling on You’ mobile phone recycling campaign.

Introducing "Zuleta", our newly-named Andean Condor chick! Thanks to everyone who suggested names and special congrats to our Facebook fan, Zaylee Sykes for choosing the winning name. Zuleta is a small community in Ecuador that has a breeding program for Andean Condors. According to Zaylee, there are only 50-60 remaining in Ecuador and she believes choosing this name is a great way of recognising this effort. Our Bird Show keepers agree! http://taronga.org.au/introducing-zuleta (Photo by Erin Stone)

Three’s a crowd – unless you’re a koala joey! Taronga volunteer Ellen Wilson caught our #cute young trio, Sydney, Milli and Tucker, snoozing happily together at Taronga’s Koala Encounter.

Meet Taronga Wildlife Hospital's new visitor! This cute little hatchling Loggerhead turtle was found on Zenith Beach at Shoal Bay in Tomaree National Park. NSW NPWS rangers transported the hatchling, weighing only 30 grams, to Taronga Wildlife Hospital where it is currently being treated for parasites. The little guy is recovering well, and it is now able to eat small pieces of pilchard and squid on its own. When fully grown, Loggerhead turtles can weigh up to 135 kilograms and reach between 90 and 280 centimetres in length!

The vets think it arrived by accident on the beach through 'rafting'. Hatchling loggerheads spend their first year rafting on seaweed and eating bite-sized prey in "floating nurseries" until they are large enough to fend for themselves in the greater ocean. It's possible that storms and strong currents could have brought the hatchling to shore prematurely. 

Loggerhead turtles are endangered, their greatest threats being loss of nesting habitat due to coastal development and incidental capture in fisheries.

The group of four brothers have been busy exploring their new home at Taronga’s Learning Centre, enjoying a tasty diet of maggots, mealworms, locusts and fruit and vegetables, along with an occasional flower as a treat. Sometimes likened to tiny punks due to their distinctive crest of long white hair, Cotton-top Tamarins are critically endangered with less than 6,000 remaining.

+Taronga Western Plains Zoo has continued its #galapagosturtoise   breeding success, welcoming two new hatchlings! The hatchlings will take 20-25 years to reach their full size and may live up to 150 years! Our photo shows the tiny pair next to three-year-old hatchling, NJ and one of our adult males.  #forthewild
 
We’re delighted to announce further success in our Galapagos Tortoise breeding program, with two tiny tortoises hatching on 24 and 26 January. These hatchlings follow our breakthrough breeding achievement in 2011 when we became the first Zoo in Australasia to successfully breed Galapagos Tortoise. NJ is now three years old and weighs in at 1100 grams. #forthewild #galapagosturtoise

Amazing zoo that does incredible work globally for animal conservation. Staff are wonderful and very helpful. Some of the stories of the animals here are jaw dropping. I can't wait for the new big cats exhibit to be unveiled. They are doing a lot to constantly improve.

This zoo was my highlight of exploring Sydney. Go see the red pandas because they are the best animals and their enclosure has a great viewing point. Look up the daily timetable before you go so you can make a plan to see any keeper talks and other shows. Bought a bunch of stuff from the gift store because there's a lot of good touristy things to grab.

A well maintained zoo with a huge variety of animals. There are plenty of talks on throughout the day which are fun and informative. Price wise it's good value for money at around $45, but you can save a bit on that if you purchase your tickets online. Getting there is a breeze too, it's a quick ferry ride from the city or you can jump on the bus. The car park is $18 for the day. The only let down is the food at the food court. It's average at best.

Wonderful zoo, currently undergoing some renovations to make it even better. We caught the ferry from Circular Quay to the wharf, then got the cable car to the top of the hill, and wandered down the path (and side paths) and enjoyed a lot of the exhibits. There is a great variety, and many of the enclosures are amazing - the view from the Giraffes takes in the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge

Amazing zoo with a fantastic "Australia Walk" exhibit - no fences separating you from the animals! The tram ride up from the ferry is both convenient and gorgeous, but just know that in order to ride it you need to buy your zoo tickets at the ferry docks in Circular Quay (maybe others too, but just have your tickets prior to arriving at the zoo). It's a very popular location, so be prepared for crowds.

Too crowded with school groups, I reckoned bringing your own food, as most attractions are usually overpriced, being a picnic basket and blanket, and sit on the grass, watch the talks and shows, wear runners and nothing fancy, but good enough for photos with those breathtaking for example a tall tall tall giraffe and in the background the most beautiful view of the Harbour Bridge from the distance unblocked. Taronga Zoo is on a hill so be careful when you go there in hot weather you get very easily tired and also when it's raining it's not the best idea to go as animals will also want an umbrella isn't the best idea as it often attractions instead bring a disposable rain poncho or similar to that. This is just good to Taronga Zoo have so many attractions it's very beautiful it's hands on it's worth it...... just keep precautions

Over rated! No big cats on display. The cable car is out of service. Not a great variety of animals, the food is really really bad and really expensive. Almost exploitative! The views are pretty good though. Overall bad value for money
