ZEALANDIA’s COVID-19 update

ZEALANDIA Ecosanctuary 0 278

With today’s announcement that New Zealand is moving its COVID-19 response to Level 3 now, and to Level 4 in 48 hours, we have made the decision to close ZEALANDIA to the public, members and volunteers, effective immediately. This includes the visitor centre, Rātā cafe, and the sanctuary itself.

Our priority at this time is the health and wellbeing of our visitors and our team, and we are making this difficult decision in order to help protect our community. We will remain closed for the next four weeks, as directed in the government’s advice today.

ZEALANDIA’s open and taking care of our visitors and teams

It’s challenging times like these that show the strength of a community. And our community is strong – we care about each other, we care about nature, and we care about our shared future. 

Spending time in nature is one of the best ways to look after both your physical and mental health, and we want to encourage everyone to take the opportunity to get outside, breathe deep, and make the most of the wildlife around us. 

ZEALANDIA’s work to keep Wellington’s wildlife thriving continues, and we are open for business, encouraging those who feel fit and well to visit.

Work is picking up steam in ZEALANDIA’s Centre for People and Nature, with around 80 people  national and internal research projects and collaborations now underway. 

Launched last year, the Centre leads and facilitates research on how to enhance the role of nature in cities. Researchers across areas of health and wellbeing, the science of nature, and connecting people and nature, are drawing on the ZEALANDIA sanctuary, the green heart and living laboratory of Wellington.
