Auckland Zoo Conservation Fund

The Auckland Zoo Conservation Fund (AZCF) was established by Auckland Zoo staff in 2000 to support conservation efforts in the wild, in New Zealand and overseas

Auckland Zoo Conservation Fund

Funds are raised from fundraising events and initiatives, proceeds from conservation product purchases, visitor admissions, donations, and sponsorship.

Without your support, none of this work would be possible - so thank you! 

The Conservation Fund supports conservation efforts in the wild

Staff contribute specialist skills to conservation projects and are also able to develop new skills that help the Zoo.

We support our own staff to develop or utilise their specialist skills and participate in field conservation initiatives. These can be projects led by Auckland Zoo or by other conservation partners.

In the past year 64 staff worked on 24 conservation projects in 22 locations around New Zealand. They spent 457 days outside the Zoo contributing 3,202 hours of fieldwork to conserve wildlife and wild habitat.

We provide financial resources for external organisations and individuals to carry out vital field conservation work in New Zealand and overseas.
