Wellington Zoo would not be able to survive without the organisations who partner with us and the individuals who support us. As a not for profit charitable trust, our life blood is the support, enthusiasm and generosity of committed Wellingtonians, visitors and our amazing supporter organisations.

How you can help

Our banana and grape bills alone are pretty substantial, as you can imagine. But aside from caring for our animals at the Zoo, the support we receive also allows us to carry out our animal care, conservation and advocacy work in New Zealand and overseas with our conservation partners to save animals in the wild.

Join us as we ignite a Zoo revolution, leading the way in showcasing all that a good Zoo should be. 

Get in touch with our Partnerships Team to discuss how your organisation could partner with Wellington Zoo to make a real difference in the world.
