I have partial notes on Auckland, Perth and Taronga Zoo which I will revise to include a complete history; and will also be detailing Adelaide, Melbourne, Wellington, Mogo and Sydney’s orangutans. The latter three facilities will be combined in a single post given they have held six orangutans between them. Index: 1.... History of Orangutan in Australasian Zoos ..read more

Melbourne Aquarium Has anyone heard anything more on this $20 million Antarctic expansion? When I visited the Melbourne Aquarium in June 2007 I was thoroughly disappointed and spent less than 2 hours in the establishment.

In this thread, i'll be posting complete histories for each zoo that has held/or holds Giraffes in our region. I figured a whole overall thread would be better than making multiple (for each zoo). I plan to also make these kind of threads for other species so stay tuned. First up will be Melbourne Zoo ..read more
