WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo

Everyone at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo cares deeply about what they do. We care about our guests and their safety, about the animals in our care and their habitats around the world, about the places in which we operate, and about each other. We aim to be a force for good wherever we operate, going above and beyond what is expected of us as a good corporate citizen.


ANIMAL CARE AND CONSERVATION

ANIMAL CARE AND CONSERVATION

We have a duty to employ the highest standards of animal welfare and husbandry, while contributing to the advancement of breeding programmes and conservation more broadly. Learn more about our approach to Conservation, Welfare and Engagement and our charity the WILD LIFE Conservation Fund.


ENVIRONMENT

ENVIRONMENT

As part of a global company, we must manage our resources responsibly. We'll always seek to reduce our impact on the environment with clear, measurable actions. We also encourage our guests to respect their own environments and do the right thing for a sustainable future. Learn about our initiatives here.


PEOPLE AND COMMUNITIES

PEOPLE AND COMMUNITIES

Our Merlin brands appeal to many different people, so we're always responsive to our guests' diverse and changing needs. We're also a committed community partner as an employer and as a force for good. Read more about our approach to accessibility, community engagement and our children’s charity Merlin’s Magic Wand here.


HEALTH, SAFETY & SECURITY

HEALTH, SAFETY & SECURITY

Our number one priority is to protect the health, safety and security of our guests, our employees, our creatures and the people who work with us. We're absolutely committed to always achieving the highest safety standards, and we'll never compromise or become complacent in this.


Conservation Status Levels

There are nine categories that classify species at high risk of extinction. Learn about them below!

 

  1. Not evaluated 
  2. Data Deficient: Inadequate information available to make an assessment of its risk 
  3. Least Concern: The species is abundant 
  4. Near Threatened: Species is close to becoming threatened 
  5. Vulnerable: Species at high risk of extinction due to rapid population decline of 30-50% over the past 10 years 
  6. Endangered: Species at high risk of extinction due to rapid population decline of 50-70% over the past 10 years 
  7. Critically Endangered: Species at extremely high risk of extinction due to rapid population decline of 80-90%+ over the past 10 years 
  8. Extinct in the Wild: Species that survive only in captivity or as artificially supported populations far outside their historical geographic range
  9. Extinct: Species in which the last individual has died or where no individual has been identified in the past 50 years
