Australia’s most advanced zoo in the heart of Western Sydney.
Sydney Zoo was founded in 2015 with an aim to create amazing experiences for the local and international community by introducing them to a range of animal species from all over the world, while also educating on animal welfare and conversation.
Sydney Zoo is embracing technology and innovation to improve animal welfare, visitor engagement and education. Sydney Zoo will be exhibiting animals in a safari-like experience. With clever designs hiding barriers combined with the latest technology, it will provide an experience that is more immersive and engaging than traditional zoos.
Sydney Zoo will support local and international conservation efforts and educate our visitors on the importance of conservation. It will be home to a number of endangered species from all over the world and believe in protecting these animals by giving them sanctuary and participating in breeding programs. Sydney Zoo is a member of the peak Zoological body ‘the Zoo’ and Aquarium Association. It will be an active participant in ZAA-administered programs for endangered animals.
Several environment initiatives have been achieved at Sydney Zoo. The Zoo was built with sustainable building materials and it is the world’s first energy independent Zoo through the development of its solar power network. Sydney Zoo also captures and recycles storm water run-off to use in the moats and garden areas. The Zoo aims to be a zero-waste space, composting all animal and food waste and using biodegradable corn starch packaging.
Further, Sydney Zoo wishes to actively preserve our local Aboriginal history and it is working closely with the local indigenous community, the Darug People. The Zoo is offering a unique, integrated Aboriginal and natural heritage program called the Bungarribee Dreaming experience with Aboriginal guides who will provide interpretation and information with the Australia Precinct.
