Taronga TV is Back in Action for Lockdown
Animal-loving kids will rejoice in hearing that last year’s home-schooling highlight, Taronga TV is back in action for this latest round of lockdown.
While many animal parks and wildlife centres have resorted to live-streaming their animal’s funny antics at various stages since the COVID crisis kicked off, Taronga TV is a cut above the rest—offering a resource that’s entertaining and educational in equal measure. Here’s what you need to know.
An Educational Lockdown Saviour
Taronga is bringing the delights of both its Zoos directly to your home through Taronga TV, where you can check-in and see what your favourite animals are up to via the many live-streaming Animal Live-Cams that cover the elephant enclosure, the lion's den and more!
There are also plenty of live video talks to engage kids—from a new Camel Keeper talk to informative videos featuring the likes of squirrel monkey babies and yellow-bellied gliders.
It’s not all about the streaming content though—in fact, Taronga TV is brimming with educational materials that can really support children’s learning. There are Zoo Mathematics sessions, videos about Working Scientifically, and plenty of Zoo Workshops, where kids will love meeting fascinating animals via video. Ultimately, there’s a whole lot of content ripe for consumption—perfect for families looking for school holiday distractions!
Where to Access Taronga TV
In addition to the plethora of existing content that Taronga TV has to offer, they’re also releasing new content daily via their social media—Facebook, Instagram and YouTube channels—as well as the Taronga TV website! Happy animal-stalking, y'all.
