I love my Job

Happy Lunch time followers,

Thought I'd pop in and say a big hello and tell you just  how much I love working at Auckland Zoo.  It is a pleasure and privilege being part of this wonderful  organisation. Today the sun is shining beautifully, around 450 school kids are here enjoying lessons with our in house Educators, our Friends of the Zoo are in with their wee ones and many day visitors have come along to enjoy this beautiful space. The Zoo is unique and special because every staff member and volunteer knows exactly why they choose to be here!

Our Vision is:
A future where people value wildlife, and species are safe from extinction.

Our Mission is:
To bring people together to build a future for wildlife.

Here are some of the guys we look after here at the Zoo

Say hi the Charlie our Bornean Orangutan

This is Lazarus our male Lion 

Rukiya our Female Giraffe


Little Blue Penguin

And our gorgeous Red Panda

These are only a very small handful of our very large, special collection, check out our website or even better come down for a visit.

Boy I love the Autumn....
