Auckland Zoo will be saying a heart-felt ‘nau mai hoki mai’ (welcome back) to visitors on site on Wednesday 2 September when it reopens at Alert Level 2.
“This second period of lockdown has been particularly hard on Aucklanders after such a wonderful spell of almost normal life. So it’s a huge relief that we can reopen to our community and allow people to once more reconnect with wildlife and with each other,” says Auckland Zoo director, Kevin Buley.
“It’s great timing, the start of Spring, new beginnings and some new life to celebrate. Hope and optimism is something we all need to share at the moment and, spending some time in nature at the Zoo is something that should put a spring in everyone’s step.”
