I remember my first trip to ZEALANDIA when I was around 10 years old, I will never forget the takahē walking past my feet, the robins following us along the track and the kākā playing around with each other.

Thanks to our members and supporters, ZEALANDIA is a leader in environmental education in Wellington for ages 3-17. We deliver more than half of all conservation learning experiences in Wellington schools, turning young people into conservationists in their own communities.

We know you care about nature. Help us to inspire the next generation to care too!  We need to raise at least $50,000 to cover the costs of our conservation learning programmes.


Help us to inspire the next generation

Your gift will help us to:

• bring young people to ZEALANDIA who would otherwise not be able to get here

• get our educators out to schools to inspire young people to be passionate and take action to protect nature and their environment

• develop new exciting and fun resources to be used in schools and at home

• fund our Youth Ambassador programme, a first for New Zealand, developing conservation leaders of the future

Help our Kākāriki

Now is a crucial point where every little bird counts, and your donation will help nestlings within the sanctuary grow to adult kākāriki in Wellington's backyards. Donations of all sizes add up to something big - together, we can make a huge difference.
