So...who and what are you supporting?

At the heart of all Auckland Zoo's work and activities is its mission: "To bring people together to build a future for wildlife".

Established in 1922, Auckland Zoo is home to the largest collection of native and exotic wildlife species in New Zealand (over 860 animals and 138 species).

At the heart of all Auckland Zoo's work and activities is its mission:

"To bring people together to build a future for wildlife". 

Auckland Zoo has earned international recognition as an outstanding centre for conservation, recreation, research and education. Over the past few years, the Zoo has won many major national and international awards. Its modernisation of exhibits, dedicated staff, interactive visitor experiences, growth as a unique venue for functions and its exciting calendar of events combine to make Auckland Zoo a dynamic place for people to visit and enjoy.

Auckland Zoo is a member of both the  Zoo Aquarium Association (ZAA) and the World Association of Zoos & Aquariums (WAZA). A key guiding document for the Zoo and how it operates is the 'World Zoo and Aquarium Conservation Strategy' - and something that unites Auckland Zoo with all member zoos and aquariums in conservation efforts to ensure a future for wildlife.
