UNforgettable experience: This Valentine's Day you and your loved one can get up close and personal to African Lions Lazarus and Maya and many more animals.

Sharing Valentine's Day with your loved one, surrounded by hundreds of exotic animals isn’t always the first thing that comes to mind in the lead up to 14 February.

But it’s an unforgettable experience, and you won’t regret booking your spot for Valentine’s Day at the Zoo this year!

At just $75 per person, you can enjoy delicious canapés, a main and dessert, and top it off with a glass of complimentary pink moscato at the Zoo’s picturesque Savannah Function Centre.

Overlooking manicured lawns and the stunning Savannah Lake, it’s the perfect way to treat your loved one.

Delectable canapés including sesame pork and spiced lamb will be followed by mains of scotch fillet or crispy poached chicken.

You won’t want to miss out on the salted caramel and chocolate mousse cake, or pistachio and almond cake for dessert. It doesn’t end there, though.

You’ll meet some of the Zoo's amazing animals as you go on a mini safari!

For a night like no other this Valentine’s Day, contact 02 6881 1438 or email Events Coordinator, Jodie McQuillan, on jmcquillan@zoo.nsw.gov.au.

PRZEWALKSKI FOUL ON THE SCENE

The pitter patter of little hooves has been welcomed at Taronga Western Plains Zoo, with the arrival of a rare Przewalski's Horse foal.

The filly was born on 1 January 2018 to first-time mother Zaria.

The Zoo now has a breeding herd of 11 Przewalski's Horses, which are the last surviving subspecies of wild horse (Equus ferus), and are native to central Asia. Przewalski's Horses are also called ‘takhi’ which means ‘spirit’ in Mongolia.

“This foal has been named Dash, and she has certainly been living up to her name,” Keeper Pascale Benoit said.

“She is healthy and well, and has plenty of energy, especially in the mornings. She can be seen dashing around and even lets out a tiny, high-pitched whinning when her mother strays too far away.”
