The Conservation Fund supports conservation efforts in the wild.
Zoo staff established the Auckland Zoo Conservation Fund in 2001 to support conservation efforts in the wild, in New Zealand and overseas.
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. On average, the Zoo spends approximately 11,000 hours working on around 40 projects around New Zealand and overseas to conserve wildlife and wild habitat.
