As a charitable trust, Wellington Zoo can’t do any of its valuable work without your support. Our aim is to become the best little zoo in the world and with your help we can make it happen.

Wellington Zoo cares for over 500 animals, 365 days a year. We’re involved in conservation projects inside and outside the Zoo, international breeding programmes and environmental management. Over 14,000 students visit us each year to learn about the natural world and over 180,000 visitors come to the Zoo each year to experience wildlife in the middle of the city.

We’re currently undergoing a ten year redevelopment programme (the ZCP) and will extensively renovate the Zoo over the next decade. This includes Wellington Zoo’s new animal hospital and centre for native wildlife and rehabilitation—The Nest.

Please help Wellington Zoo become the best little zoo in the world and make a donation now. It takes only a couple of minutes and is simple and secure.
