Wellington Zoo is a non-profit charitable trust and we rely on the generosity of individuals, sponsors and funders. This means we’re not in a position to provide free passes for raffles, spot prizes or auctions.
Wellington Zoo has made a commitment to support patients and families staying at the Ronald MacDonald House and the Wellington Hospitals and Health Foundation, as we feel this is where we can make our support go furthest.
