Just one of the many incredible gems waiting to be explored in our sanctuary for New Zealand’s wildlife, The Forest / Te Wao nui a Tāne aviary is home to a whole host of fascinating birds like tūī, kererū, pāteke and the stars of this video!


Keeper Chat - Ashleigh tell us about New Zealand's kākā and tīeke!

As Ashleigh explains kākā Ngaio and Wild One are part of a breed-for-release programme with our partners at the Department of Conservation, while tīeke (saddleback) are a stand-out conservation success story! We’d love to see you at the Zoo this weekend so you can connect with and contribute to the conservation of species just like this.
