We’d like to thank some incredible wildlife-loving students who recently raised funds for the Auckland Zoo Vet Hospital!
Students Ellie and her brother Dylan presented their heartfelt donation to our Veterinary Coordinator Mikaylie on behalf of the students at Laingholm Primary School. While they were visiting, they got to see some of the patients we’re currently caring for, including a loggerhead sea turtle.
Ten-year-old Ellie is part of the School’s Student Council, who get together each term to agree on a worthy cause to fundraise for. Prior to Covid-19, students would often bake delicious treats to sell but this time they had to put their thinking caps on and come up with other ways to fundraise. The outcome of this was a fun ‘Guess the Teacher’s Teddy’ game; a board was set up with multiple photos and students would have to guess which teddy belonged to which teacher.
