At Wellington Zoo we have around 500 animals, comprising over 100 species. Some are critically endangered, like the Sumatran Tiger and Cotton Top Tamarin; others are unique in New Zealand to Wellington Zoo, like the Malayan Sun Bear, White-Cheeked Gibbon and Australian Pelican. 

You can get up close to Cheetahs, Red Pandas, Lions, Lemurs, Meerkats and Giraffes in a Close Encounter, or learn all about your favourite animal at one of our daily talks.
