Why we support the vision

Taronga identifies with the v202020 project through the objectives of Taronga's Sustainability Plan. Taronga's foreshore and in-grounds landscape largely reflect the local bushland setting. The site is home to native wildlife and provides an important linkage to the National Park and harbour foreshore. It is important that we recognise the importance of providing these linkages in our increasingly urbanised environment.
