Wellington Zoo Trust


Wellington Zoo is New Zealand’s first Zoo, and Wellington’s oldest conservation organisation, caring for animals since 1906. 

The Zoo is a not for profit charitable trust, and has been that way since 2003. 

We're proud to be the world’s first carboNZero certified zoo.

We're a member of the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) and follow their commitments to excellence in animal welfare and conservation.

We're also part of the Zoo and Aquarium Association - a regional organisation for zoos in the Australasian region. ZAA manages the coordination of breeding programmes and sets the level of professional standards and practice for members. We are proud to have been accredited under their Animal Welfare

Our aim is to offer you a wild day out packed with learning and fun. With around 500 animals of all shapes and sizes to check out, we’re sure you’ll leave with a sense of wonder and respect for the beauty of nature.
