Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be inside the forest canopy? Perhaps you would experience the woosh of boldly coloured wings, zooming on by. Lightly, yet purposefully navigating the depth and mystery of the forest. Excited by the majestic creatures in your midst, coming eye to eye with the beauty, strength and intrigue of these bold characters.
Auckland Zoo’s Animal Experiences Team is giving you that very opportunity. Sitting within a beautiful, new free-flight space, it wouldn’t be unheard of to have your fringe brushed aside by the wings of a sun conure – a rare experience, considering there are less than 4000 left in the wild. Stay as still as a tree, and you will experience birds from Australia to the South Americas whizzing by. You’ll get to understand their individual personalities, learn about their characteristics, and be impressed by their intelligence.
