An illuminated trail of amazing and endangered species will light up Vivid Sydney’s wildest precinct as part of Taronga Zoo’s Centenary celebrations.
Vivid Sydney at Taronga Zoo will include ten giant animal multimedia light sculptures, representing ten critical species from Australia and Sumatra that Taronga is committed to protecting.
Captivating creatures ranging from the magnificent Asian Elephant to the vividly coloured Corroboree Frog will sparkle at night to inspire visitors to support Taronga’s efforts to create a shared future for wildlife and people.
With interactive lighting, sound effects and even moving parts, these giant light sculptures by Ample Projects will be among the largest and most technologically advanced lanterns ever to feature in Vivid Sydney.
Taronga’s 10 Legacy Species light sculptures will be augmented by a supporting cast of echidnas, cicadas, chameleons and even funnel-web spiders, along with thousands of smaller lanterns made by NSW school students as part of the Zoo’s Centenary celebrations.
Food and beverage outlets will be open throughout the Zoo, as will Taronga’s retail outlets to purchase keepsakes and other wildlife memorabilia. Taronga is a non-profit organisation and every ticket and purchase helps support the Zoo’s wildlife conservation efforts.
Vivid Sydney at Taronga Zoo is part of an exciting Centenary Program, which will celebrate Taronga’s first 100 years and launch a legacy for the future of wildlife conservation.
