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.
