Summary

ZOOS & WILDLIFE PARKS. AUSTRALIAN. A captivating profile of 100 animals across 100 years at Taronga Zoo. Time at Taronga shares intimate stories from the Zoo's own extensive archives and striking images from more than 20 professional photographers, as well as unforgettable moments photographed by the zoo keepers themselves over the decades. It is a fascinating insight into the significance of each animal species, why they are at Taronga, and how the role of the Zoo has changed since it first opened its gates. It also reveals how Taronga is no longer defined by the boundaries of its Sydney harbourside location, providing valuable field conservation initiatives, education and resources in wildlife projects, on the ground, in four continents.
