Wildlife Witness App
Taronga has partnered with the Zoo and Aquarium Association and TRAFFIC, the wildlife trade monitoring network, to make a difference to the illegal wildlife trafficking trade.
Wildlife Witness is a smart phone app that allows every traveller and local to safely and easily report suspicious activity involving the poaching, smuggling or selling of wildlife. These reports are sent to TRAFFIC who work with local authorities to put a stop to wildlife trafficking.
Wildlife Witness is the signature conservation project of the 2015 Twilight at Taronga music series. The Wildlife Witness logo will appear on all Twilight at Taronga materials and visitors to the events will be encouraged to download the app for free from the iTunes store to join the global community united on this cause.
Twilight at Taronga will be working with transport operators to provide additional transport options, so that everyone can get to and from Taronga Zoo easily and enjoy the evening.
