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.

About the author (2016)

Catharine Retter is a Sydney author (Lower North Shore). This is her eighth non-fiction book and her second 'zoo book' -- she is also the author of the popular selling, Life is a Zoo, published in 2006. Although she has had a long association with Taronga, never tires of the new and fascinating insights the animals provide, and continues to be surprised and heartened by the extensive field conservation initiatives Taronga is involved in well beyond the boundaries defined by its Sydney harbourside location.
