Winter Wednesdays

Every Wednesday in August

Wrap up warm to enjoy a mid-winter treat with Winter Wednesdays at Wellington Zoo!

Every visitor that comes to see our beautiful animals on any Wednesday in August will get in for a very special price. Adult entry is only $12 and $6 per child!

Come along to our regular animal talks and learn about how animals change and cope over winter, and what we do to help keep them warm.

So put on your winter woollies, grab a hot chocolate, and explore what’s new at the Zoo!

Wellington Zoo Rangatahi Roots & Shoots programme

We are excited to launch our Rangatahi (young people) Roots & Shoots project at the Zoo. As part of our Zoo revolution, we want to engage with 12 – 15-year-olds who are passionate about the future of the planet we share. Using Dr Jane Goodall’s Root & Shoots model of engagement, Rangatahi will select an issue of concern to them and design and develop a community campaign or action, with support from our Zoo staff.

We’re looking for Rangatahi who:

  • are aged 12 to 15 years old.
  • are willing and able to commit to the programme for 1.5 hours every fortnight for Term 3; which may culminate in an activity in the October School Holidays.
  • can join our Zoo Crew which costs $39 and allows unlimited entry to the Zoo for a year .
  • have access to transport to the Zoo.
