Ever thought of being a flamingologist? We’re now giving you that chance!

In our latest in a series of Trade Me auctions raising funds for conservation, we’re giving one lucky bidder the chance to spend a morning with one of Auckland Zoo’s bird keepers and flamingo experts. Here, you’ll get to experience the care and science that goes into looking after a flock of flamingos. 

You and up to two friends or family will venture into our flamingo habitat one morning to help our bird keepers complete one of the regular weigh-ins and health checks of our days-old flamingo chick and learn more about these incredibly special birds. You’ll also get to hear more about the diverse range of species we look after at the zoo, finishing off with a guided walk of our Te Wao Nui Forest aviary.

Auckland Zoo is a not-for-profit organisation, and conservation is at the heart of everything we do. All of the funds raised in these VIP auctions go directly to the Auckland Zoo Conservation Fund, enabling us to continue to make a difference for wildlife and wild places in Aotearoa and around the world.

Enter your bid and find our T&C’s, here.
