Things are getting wild at Auckland Zoo: in September, the massive eco-project Te Wao Nui will open its doors. The 16-million-dollar development at New Zealand’s biggest zoo will allow visitors to discover New Zealand’s diverse flora and fauna.

The entire project comprises of six distinct ecological environments, The Islands, The Wetlands, The Night, The Coast, The High Country and The Forest and development of all areas is well on target. Extensive planting has been carried out and new animals are arriving at Auckland Zoo.

On Queen’s Birthday weekend The Forest was even opend to visitors for a unique sneak preview to coincide with World Environment Day. The area, which has been modelled on the Waitakere Ranges rain forest, will soon be home to some of the country’s most precious birds. The walk-through aviary will hold native New Zealand birds such as the Kereru, Bellbird, Kaka, Kakariki and Kokako.

The whole of Te Wao Nui eco-project will house more than 100 native plant species and 60 different native animal species. Zoo Director Jonathan Wilcken says: “Whether you’re a local or a visitor to Auckland, this is going to be a stunning way to experience New Zealand’s unique animals, plants and culture. It will also be a great way to learn of the incredible efforts now underway to protect our amazing natural heritage.”
