ZEALANDIA has always been, and will always be, for conservation not profit. We have relied on the support of everyday kiwis and visitors to continue building healthy populations of our precious native New Zealand species. It is these generous donations that allow us to extend conservation efforts beyond the fence, increasing biodiversity and knowledge of the natural world.

Help us to continue educating, inspiring and enthralling future generations, and providing a safe haven for these iconic native species we’ve come to know and love. Your support will build a healthy and sustainable future for Wellington and New Zealand as a whole.

All donations over $5.00 are tax deductible.

Keep Wellington's wildlife flourishing

Right now, ZEALANDIA faces unprecedented challenges. Most of the revenue that keeps the sanctuary running comes from visitors and supporters, and COVID-19 stopped international and local visitors almost overnight. We can all continue this work by each donating today.
