So what makes these humans so special? 

Great question. They’re all hard-working animal lovers, dedicated to caring for wildlife and wild places (both here in Auckland and beyond). 

The awesome humans of Auckland Zoo are some of the best vets, conservation experts, designers, architects, storytellers, horticulturalists, nutritionists, educators, keepers and support staff in New Zealand.

Yep, we’re pretty proud of our team. And this is a great way to get to know them a bit better. You’ll find out what makes them tick, gets them out of bed in the morning and gets them fired up. You’ll find out why they love their jobs and why they spend more than 8,000 hours working on conservation projects in the field every year.
