            Why does each koala in a zoo need 1000 trees? How do you check a Tree-kangaroo's pouch for joeys? Why is a wombat's poo square-shaped? And how do dogs help look after 'extinct' bandicoots? Discover all this and more, as we take you behind the scenes of a modern Australian zoo and... animal hospital. Find out what it's really like to be a zookeeper and hear their funny and fascinating stories about the animals they look after - from the koala who regularly escapes her cage, to cheeky Tasmanian devil cubs nipping the keepers' ankles for food; and from Jess, the majestic wedge-tailed eagle, to tiny but precious frogs and skinks. These delightful and fascinating stories for children aged 9 to 12 reveal the essential role of zoos today, from preserving and rehabilitating endangered species to making groundbreaking scientific discoveries and uncovering more about how animals think. Packed full of fascinating facts, Ninja Bandicoots and Turbo-Charged Wombats is the perfect read for animal-loving kids.

All fourteen of New Zealand's national parks are represented through Rob's vibrant photographs - from Tongariro, New Zealand's first national park, to Rakiura in the deep south, the country's newest park - he captures the essence of the parks showcasing native birdlife, flora and fauna and the many opportunities for activities such as kayaking, walking and skiing. This vibrant pictorial celebrates the beauty of these areas and Alison Dench emphasises the great pride and spiritual connection New Zealanders hold for their land with an introduction to each park.

            Time at Taronga: A Zoo Down-Under (Hardback)

            • RRP: $49.99

            • In Stock At Publisher

            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 t...hemselves 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. Among its many conservation projects, Taronga helps in educating local Zambian communities against lion poaching; provides assistance to fill in old wells in Sumatra that have killed elephants, tigers and rhinoceros; works in partnership with organisations such as the Jane Goodall Institute in the Congo Basin to release orphaned chimpanzees back into a secure sanctuary; as well as being able to breed and release various Australian species back into the wild where they were previously on the brink of extinction.
