Inspiring the next generation of conservationists.

Here at Auckland Zoo we aim to lead by example, with optimism, with expertise and with passion. By connecting today's tamariki with wildlife, nature, and conservation, we can foster passion and empathy for wildlife and wild places.

Our education programme has been developed with the latest wildlife conservation science in mind. We have also drawn on a wealth of education experience within the team to ensure learning experiences are engaging and informative – inspiring informed action from our younger citizens.

Conservation Learning Visits!

We are fully booked for Term 3, 2022 don't miss out and book for Term 4 today!

The Conservation Learning Team are ready and excited to connect with ākonga across Aotearoa in 2022!

Explore our range of virtual and onsite Conservation Learning sessions via the tabs below, or book a self-guided visit to roam the Zoo freely with your group.

We look forward to welcoming you and your ākonga to Auckland Zoo in the near future so that we can share our passion for wildlife conservation and share our knowledge to inspire tamariki to be kaitiaki of te taiao (the environment)!
