About the sponsorship
Supporting Taronga Conservation Society Australia is about making a difference – from saving endangered species to sustainability.
QBE has been a principal partner of Taronga Zoo since 2005. Our partnership benefits Sydney’s Taronga Zoo and Dubbo’s Taronga Western Plains Zoo and their advocacy for wildlife across the globe. Taronga has a clear vision to help secure a shared future for wildlife and people with activities that span the fields of conservation, research, education and tourism.
QBE are incredibly proud to sponsor the iconic QBE Free-flight Bird Show, which is free with Zoo entry and runs twice daily at the Zoo’s amphitheatre. The sky is the limit in this truly unique presentation, where both Australian and exotic birds free fly against the stunning and iconic backdrop of Sydney Harbour.
