Wellington Zoo is a unique, dynamic and accessible Zoo – a Zoo that provides visitors with a place to celebrate the living world. Through engaging experiences and best practice conservation, sustainability, animal care and management we are igniting a Zoo revolution by changing what a new Zoo stands for.
New Zealand’s first zoo opened in 1906, Wellington Zoo holds a special place in the hearts of the local community being visited annually by over 240,000 people from the Wellington region, along with visitors from throughout New Zealand and around the world.
Conservation is at the heart of everything we do at Wellington Zoo. After becoming the first carboNZero certified zoo in the world, we continue to reduce our carbon footprint year on year. We are committed to supporting conservation partners in New Zealand and around the world to ensure the survival of endangered species in the wild.
