Support us

Join us to help build a future for wildlife and wild places. There are many meaningful ways to support Auckland Zoo.

Together, we’re making a real and tangible difference for wildlife, restoring wild places and helping communities.

We’re a not-for-profit organisation with conservation science at the heart of everything we do. You can see this through the exceptional care we provide for our animals, the specialist skills our amazing staff put to use conserving threatened wildlife throughout Aotearoa, the conservation partnerships we support globally. As a charitable organisation, approximately 60% of Auckland Zoo's revenue is generated through entry fees, so we rely on our amazing supporters, like you, to be able to continue our conservation Wild Work for the world’s most vulnerable and at risk animal species.

Since 2000, your visits and donations have helped us to raise over 4 million dollars to carry out conservation work on the ground in Africa, Asia, Tasmania, the Pacific and all over Aotearoa. Go team!

Support us with a Visit

Every visit helps make our conservation efforts possible. Auckland Zoo is a not-for-profit, so all of the money from every ticket sold goes towards building a brighter future for wildlife, wild places and all of us.

A Day Pass gives you access to Auckland Zoo for the whole day. Do you visit Auckland Zoo often? An Annual Pass Membership costs the equivalent of 4 visits but means you can come to the zoo 364 days a year!

Visit our Zoo Shop

Check out our range of toys, clothes, books, gifts and more! By purchasing from the Zoo Shop, you’ll not only have a great product, but also help our conservation efforts for important and endangered species around the world.

Wildlife conservation science is at the heart of everything we do, your support has never been more important. If you love what we do, please support the Zoo today and help us continue to build a future for wildlife.
