In National Geographics Epic Adventures with Bertie Gregory, now streaming on Disney+, National Geographic explorer and wildlife filmmaker Bertie Gregory travels the world to tell extraordinary real-life animal stories.
After Bertie’s epic journey, we were inspired to do some exploring a little closer to home! Join us as we go on our own epic adventure with Carla McIlroy to Sydney’s iconic Taronga Zoo and catch up with three Zookeepers. Along the journey, we will learn about some of the very special native animals who call the zoo home and what they are doing to protect and save wildlife.
Starting with the Greater Bilby, these little critters are critically endangered ground-dwelling marsupials who love deserts, clay, and stony soils across Australian landscapes like the Pilbara and Great Sandy Deserts.
Zookeeper Klay is here in the immersive desert classroom at Taronga Zoo to tell you three things you may not know about the Greater Bilby, as well as Taronga Zoo's ongoing conservation efforts.
Next up, meet and learn some incredible facts about our native snakes with Zookeeper Chris, who introduces us to Ruby the Diamond Python, and the equally beautiful but endangered Sydney local, the Broad-Headed snake. Zookeeper Chris also shares some great knowledge of snakebite first aid and some great facts you may not have heard before!
And finally, we catch up with Zookeeper Del, the Corrobboree Frog expert at Taronga Zoo to learn more about this unique and tiny frog.
