An update on Auckland Zoo’s Tāwharanui Field Trip Programme:

After careful consideration we have made the tough decision to postpone the Tāwharanui Conservation Education programme for this season. Like many other organisations, Auckland Zoo has been significantly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and are not currently in a position to fulfil this programme.  

This means that we will not be taking bookings for Term 4, 2020 and Term 1, 2021. We know this will be disappointing for many schools who were considering taking part in this education programme and we hope that those schools understand. We are constantly reviewing our programmes and will continue to work on new ways we can support schools through our Outreach Conservation Education programme and deliver an experience that connects pupils with conservation and environmental science.     

We will regularly update this page, so please keep checking or sign up to our newsletter here for more updates.
