THIS WEEK AT THE ZOO

Every day at the Zoo we have special animal talks and demonstrations to make your visit more fun and to help you learn more about the fascinating creatures that live at Wellington Zoo. Come and see an otter being trained to step on scales, learn all about the spiders that live in your home or see how many fish a pelican can eat at once.

Before you visit, book a Close Encounter so you can have an intimate, interactive experience with some of our most engaging animals.
