Join us on our mission.

Auckland Zoo is a non-profit wildlife conservation science organisation driven by its mission ‘to bring people together to build a future for wildlife’.

Every year we welcome around 700,000 visitors to the Zoo and share and connect with over 100,000 more online - providing incredible opportunities for millions in our community to join us in being kaitiaki of the Zoo and our environment.

From excellence in animal care and welfare and conserving wildlife in the wild – locally and overseas, to enhancing the wellbeing of our communities and nurturing in people a life-long connection with nature, we are passionate about our mahi (work).


Sponsorship at Auckland Zoo

The role of outstanding modern zoos, like Auckland Zoo, in preserving the future of Aotearoa and the world’s biodiversity, has never been more important than it is today. Auckland Zoo is celebrating its 100th year and entering the most exciting period in its history with innovative and ambitious plans!

It’s only with the collaboration and support of like-minded partners and sponsors that we can realise these plans and succeed and make a positive difference for wildlife, wild places and our communities – all of which are interconnected.

As part of Tātaki Auckland Unlimited, a Council Controlled Organisation (CCO), Auckland Zoo receives a much-valued 14% subsidy from Auckland Council, but as non-profit, we are reliant on the remaining 86% from our wonderful visitors, sponsors, and partners. 

We’d love you to join us here at Auckland Zoo, so together we can build a great future for wildlife, wild places, and ultimately all of us!
