To bring people together to build a future for wildlife
Since opening on 17 December in 1922, Auckland Zoo has welcomed over 28 million visitors!
While how we operate today may be worlds away from the early days, many of our predecessors including some visionary former directors, have all contributed to the Zoo's journey and its progress.
A winner of national and international awards for our conservation efforts, wildlife research, and innovative exhibits, today the Zoo enjoys the reputation as one of the world's most progressive zoos.
