Stand with us and become a Light for the Wild
Lights for the Wild at Taronga Zoo Sydney backed by American Express is back! Running from 24 May–15 June, your journey begins at Taronga’s heritage-listed main entrance—brought to life with our dazzling and moving animal projection show. Walk through the gates and explore the illuminated trail that winds through the stunning grounds of Taronga Zoo Sydney, showcasing new awe-inspiring giant multimedia light sculptures: meet the magnificent Sumatran Tiger and her new gorgeous tiger cubs, a fearsome pride of Lions and a Koala set against the spectacular Sydney Harbour awash in Vivid lights. Back this year is also the brightly coloured Marine Turtle, a swarm of tiny buzzing bees and our larger-than-life gorilla family – plus a whole cast of other captivating creatures that will sparkle in the night. Take time out and alight into the Taronga Centenary Theatre to see a multi-award winning animated short film favourite, reimagined as an amazing 270-degree cinema experience.
This year each of our incredible installations and light sculptures tell a fascinating story about our wildlife conservation. At Taronga we believe in a world where wild species make a comeback. Where the wild remains wild, and one day the balance is restored. Stand with us at Vivid Sydney at Taronga Zoo to become a wildlife champion and be a Light for the Wild.
