This year, we've been celebrating our 110th birthday as New Zealand's first zoo. But it's not our only first!

Since 1906, Wellington Zoo has become recognised for our work in conservation, animal care, and sustainability.  As well as providing excellent care for all of the animals here at the Zoo, we care about their wild counterparts and the habitats on our planet which need protecting. That's why we're proud to be the world's first carboNZero certified zoo!

We're delighted to be included in Expedia’s recent round up about Amazing Sustainable Zoos Around the World. The trip-planning site explains what carbon zero means describing how we reduce our carbon emissions by reducing our consumption, reusing materials and recycling. If you want to join our efforts, learn more about how we became a Green Zoo and become a Green You!
