Run Wild for Taronga – help feed your favourite animals
It’s been a tough year for many of us, and Taronga is no exception. With the cumulative effects of the drought, bushfire crisis and COVID-19, our animals need you now more than ever. That’s why we’re bringing you a brand-new challenge for the month of June to keep you moving and help keep our animals fed and looked after!
Did you know that it costs us around $35,000 a week to feed our animals in our two Zoos?
For $15 you’ll unlock exclusive content, fitness classes, prizes and competitions to keep you inspired. That’s the equivalent of just 50c a day in June!
We remain committed to securing a shared future for wildlife and people, and one thing we know for sure is the needs of our wildlife both here in Australia, in the wake of the recent bushfires and drought and across the globe are more urgent than ever. Your participation and fundraising for Run Wild for Taronga mean the world to us and will support Taronga in helping to feed and care for your favourite animals!
What challenge will you choose?
Move it your way, whether that’s walking, jogging, swimming, skipping or stretching it out, it’s your choice! Choose the challenge that suits your lifestyle best, and get moving to help support Taronga’s animals.
1km a day for 30 days
Set your own pace and enjoy a 1km a day challenge. That’s the equivalent of 1300 steps a day, just 10 minutes of movement!
6km a day for 30 days
For a bit of a challenge, commit to 6km a day and that’s the equivalent of 8000 steps a day or just 35 minutes of exercise….your body and our animals will thank you!
13km a day for 30 days
For the keen fitness fiends, stretch those legs and get moving to complete 13km a day over 30 days. That’s the equivalent distance of Taronga Zoo Sydney, to Taronga Western Plains Zoo Dubbo!
