In light of the devastation caused by this season's bushfires and the ongoing long-term drought felt throughout the state, the Taronga Conservation Society Australia invites you to take a moment to reflect and focus on what's to come at a guided group meditation.

Mindful Mornings at Taronga will be a chance for the community to gather and support Taronga Zoo's ongoing response to the bushfire crisis, with proceeds from the events going towards the Taronga Wildlife Crisis Appeal. Plus, you'll get to hear more about what the zoo is doing to help the thousands of injured Australian animals.

Over three mornings — on Friday, March 6; Sunday, March 8; and Sunday, March 29 — Nicho Plowman will lead you through a 25-minute meditation aimed at calming minds. Plowman is a vedic meditation teacher and co-founder of the app Insight Timer. The meditation will then be followed by a talk with a keeper about Taronga's commitment to supporting wildlife.

Tickets are $55 per person and include all-day zoo entry so you can make a day of it with a visit to meet the koalas, elephants, tree kangaroos and more.

CORRECTION: FEBRUARY 18, 2020 — This article previously stated that the meditation session would run for 90 minutes, but this is incorrect. It will run for 25 minutes and will be followed by a talk with a Taronga keeper. The above copy has been updated to reflect this.
