Setting up New Zealand’s first centre for conservation medicine, helping to breed the rarest duck in the world and caring for kākāpō on their sanctuary islands – Richard Jakob-Hoff’s extensive career has always been focused on conserving and understanding more about wildlife. In our latest episode reflecting on the Zoo’s centenary year, Richard looks back on his 30+ years at Auckland Zoo and highlights a few of the incredible conservation-focused projects he’s been a key part of during this time.
