Here at Auckland Zoo we have over a thousand mouths to feed each day – from big cats to baboons, tīeke to tuatara, cheetah to cotton tops!
Each animal species has their own specific nutritional requirements that they need to thrive - and making sure our wildlife get top-quality meat, veggies, fruits and insects is one of our most substantial and necessary expenses. Can you imagine how much our large herbivores eat?
Your generous donation could provide a hunk of juicy meat to our carnivores, or some locusts for our precious primates. Did you know our animals consume up to 1700 insects a week?!
