KF: Can you tell us about the conservation efforts Taronga is implementing to help protect endangered species?

PM: There are lots of different levels to that. There's the research level where we try to learn more about green habits and more about animals' habitats and how they survive. There are also breeding programs. ... The area I'm most involved with is about connecting people with animals. Hopefully these efforts make them become more engaged and conservation-focused in their everyday lives.
