Auckland Zoo is currently closed to visitors.

As the New Zealand Government and healthcare experts have moved the Auckland region to Alert Level 3 in response to COVID-19, Auckland Zoo is now closed to visitors.

Although we’re currently closed to our community, our skilled and dedicated Zoo whanau of essential workers will be continuing their hard work to ensure that our animals receive the same high levels of care that they always enjoy – just as they did when we were previously in lockdown.

While it’s not possible for you to visit us at present, here on our website and through our social channels, we’ll be bringing the Zoo to you from the safety of your bubbles – so that we can all stay connected and together continue to share our love for wildlife and wild places. You’ll find heaps of great content at Activities for Kids and Learning at Home Resources and we’ll continue to bring our latest news and activities as they happen.

As part of Regional Facilities Auckland (RFA) Auckland Zoo will stay working closely with RFA and Auckland Council to follow all Ministry of Health guidelines and respond to and implement all measures to help contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Be kind, stay safe, kia kaha

Nga mihi nui (our thanks) to everyone – our Zoo whanau, our much-valued community of visitors that we consider our friends, and all our partners. In working together, we can help keep everyone safe during this unprecedented time. Kia kaha (stay strong) and our aroha to you all.
