We're thrilled to announce that Wellington Zoo has received a grant from the Kaupapa Hiranga Tahua Lottery Significant Project Funds of $811,702 to go towards the construction of our Snow Leopard habitat and visitor experience.

Snow Leopards are considered vulnerable to extinction, with only an estimated 3,500-7,500 left in the wild. We're partnering with a Nepali conservation group, called Mountain Spirit , to create a visitor experience that will allow visitors to connect with and learn about the threats Snow Leopards, and other species, face due to climate change.

We are so grateful to our funders, community of philanthropists and donors who have made contributions and purchased our fundraising items!

We are one snow leopard leap away from our fundraising target. If you wish to donate you can do so here 👇
