Opened in December 1922, the Auckland Zoo is now in its 96th year of operation, and is one of New Zealand’s premier zoological parks. Spread out over 40 acres of land, located 6 km away from central Auckland, the Auckland Zoo is home to nearly 1400 animals of 138 different species. Divided into regions specific to where the different animals are from, the Auckland Zoo has recently begun work in developing a South-East Asian wing for the endemic flora and fauna of the region.
This 40 acre zoological garden is home to some 120 species of native and exotic animals. The zoo has evolved immensely since it first opened in 1922, acquiring various new animals and expanding greatly in size. It has tons of different enclosures and exhibits for the different animals, such as the hippo river, the orangutan trail, and the tiger territory. It even has a kids play area with animals like chickens, guinea pigs and frogs displayed. The Auckland Zoo houses the New Zealand Centre for Conservation Medicine, the first such institution in the world.
