This is a catalogue of the places in New Zealand which display captive wildlife. The main zoos in New Zealand are generally either council-operated or managed by charitable trusts. The smaller wildlife parks, bird collections, etc (i.e. most of the animal collections) are usually private hobby-collections which have been opened to the public, and they usually have relatively non-exotic species. Aquariums are mostly privately-owned. There are lots of hobby farms or commercial farms (including deer farms, emu farms, alpaca farms, even a prawn farm) which are open for visitors and I have included those I know of. Many botanic gardens (run by city or town councils) have an aviary or aviaries and I have included the ones I am aware of, even though most keep only common aviary birds. I have also included museums which have displays of live animals (usually native fish or invertebrates) because they are institutions of education. I have arranged the collections in two different ways. In the first post I have listed them all roughly in order from north to south, so that it is easy to see where collections are located geographically (e.g. for anyone travelling through a region). In the second post I have divided the collections into categories so that it is easy to find places of specific interest (e.g. native wildlife or petting zoos). The categories I have split them into in the second post are as follows: 1) Zoos (general animal collections, especially those with a focus on exotic wild animals) 2) New Zealand Wildlife (collections with a predominant or sole focus on native animals, and including rescue centres which are open to visitors) 3) Bird Collections and Aviaries (these are almost all Botanic Gardens which have an aviary or aviaries. Any bird collections which focus solely on native New Zealand species are listed under the previous category) 4) Aquariums 5) Butterfly Houses 6) Museums with live animals 7) Farm Parks and Petting Zoos (collections which are mainly or solely domestic animals. I have included working farms which are open as interactive attractions - alpaca farms, especially, are often open for visitors - but I have excluded those which are only a part of holiday parks or B&Bs [i.e. for guests but not general visitors] or which are just open access farms [i.e. part of public walking routes]) In the original versions of this list I excluded animal collections which housed only domestics (i.e. the farm parks and petting zoos) but I have decided to include these now as I felt that the list might be of more general use that way. There are loads of these small private parks in New Zealand, so they will keep getting added as I come across them. Websites are given for those collections which have them. ZAA full and associate member institutions are noted. (ZAA was formerly known as ARAZPA). At the bottom of the list in this first post I have included some closed collections. These are generally either the larger collections, or aquariums, or ones which may otherwise come up in searches of New Zealand zoos. ........................................................................

SELECTED CLOSED ZOOS [In descending order, from north to south] Museum Of Fishes (Whangarei) – closed in 2000. Aquatic World Aquarium (Paihia) – seemingly closed? I can't find any recent references to it. It may have been turned into a restaurant. Auckland Lion Safari Park (Auckland) – opened September 1981, closed October 1991? (in liquidation until May 1995). Franklin Zoo [formerly Mark Vette's Rescue Zoo, which was formerly Whangarata Zoo Park] (Pokeno) – closed April 2012 following the death of the owner (killed by an elephant at the zoo). See here on Zoochat: Franklin Zoo Forums Shaw's Bird Park (aka Mangakotukutuku Bird Reserve) (Hamilton) - bird collection opened in 2018 and closed in 2023. See an article here about its story: https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/30...rted-a-yearslong-dispute-over-a-piece-of-land Tropical Butterfly Garden [also known as Butterfly and Orchid Garden] (Thames) - opened in 1999 at which time it was the only tropical butterfly house in the country. Closed in early 2018 with the intention of reopening on a different site, but this never happened. Living Art Wildlife Park (Tauranga) – closed in 2011. Marineland (Moturiki Island, Tauranga) – opened 1966, closed May 1981. There's not much available information. This article (Yes, 600 of us 'like' the old Pools) says "it was home to dozens of marine mammals as well as chimpanzees, llamas, wallabies, kea, possums and ferrets." Marineland of New Zealand (Napier) – opened January 1965; closed to the public in September 2008 following the death of the last dolphin, then variously open and closed until final closure in April 2009. Most animals remained on site until 2013-2015. The site has been redeveloped into part of a public recreation area. See this Zoochat thread: Marineland of New Zealand, Napier (Closed) - last dolphin at Marineland dies Nocturnal House (Napier) - I don't know the proper name of this establishment and there is pretty much nothing on the internet about it. I think it would have closed in the 1990s. The most information I have found was from a newspaper account of a school trip in 1988 (https://knowledgebank.org.nz/text/newspaper-article-1988-outward-bound/): "The smell was awful, every one was holding their noses. In the cages we saw a Fitch Ferret, a Bush Gecko, a Kiore, a Pharyphanta Snail, a Sugar Glider that looked really unusual, a Hedgehog, a Morepork, a Barn Owl, a Nankeen Night Heron, and a North Island Brown Kiwi." The account also mentions a Brush-tailed Possum, and that there were five Brown Kiwi kept there. Tweeters and Friends (near Palmerston North) - a quite large aviary collection behind a pet supply shop. It closed as a public attraction in 2023. The Parrot Ranch (Levin) - a private parrot collection open to the public for a short period (roughly from 2008 to 2011). Sometime after closing for public visits the owners moved away. As well as parrots and a few other birds, there were also Cottontop Tamarins and Madagascar Day Geckos. Owlcatraz Native Bird and Wildlife Park [also known as Owlcatraz Tourist and Educational Park] (Shannon) - opened in 1997 and closed when the owners retired in July 2020. See this article about its closure: https://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/...-park-owlcatraz-sold-for-subdivision#comments Te Nikau Barnyard (Lindale) [petting zoo] - closed 2015 African Lion Safari Park (Otaihanga, near Paraparaumu) – opened 1979, closed 1982? (dissolution of company in 1986). McArthur Park Seaquarium (Titahi Bay, north of Wellington) – opened January 1987, closed 1990. Eco World Aquarium and Terrarium [formerly called Seahorse World; also known simply as Picton Aquarium] (Picton) - originally opened as the Aquarium Of The Marlborough Sounds in 2002, closed in December 2022 after lengthy legal issues. Touch the Sea Aquarium [also known as Mapua Aquarium] (Mapua, Nelson) – opened 1999; destroyed in an arson attack in September 2011. See this Zoochat thread: Nelson Aquarium Destroyed by Fire Marlborough Zoological Park (Renwick) – opened in 1982, closed in c.1985-1988. There is very little information online. This article is the only comprehensive account: https://www.stuff.co.nz/marlborough...zealand-zoo-that-was-washed-away-in-a-weekend. The zoo was overwhelmed by floods in July 1983 and a lot of the animals drowned, although it stayed open for a few more years. The article mentions or depicts lions, tigers, peccaries, barbary sheep, water buffalo, American bison, blackbuck, deer, kangaroos, black-capped capuchins, small-clawed otters, and ostrich. The giraffe mentioned in some places apparently never existed. Kaikoura Seaquarium (Kaikoura) – a small free-entry aquarium run by the University of Canterbury's field station in Kaikoura. I don't know when it originally opened but it was closed after the big earthquakes of 2011. Kaikoura Marine Centre and Aquarium (Kaikoura) – a very small operation (unrelated to the university's aquarium mentioned above) which opened in 2012 and eventually closed after further earthquakes in 2017. It was supposed to reopen once a new premises was found but this seems unlikely now. Southern Encounter Aquarium and Kiwi House (Christchurch) – opened 1997; closed following severe earthquake damage in February 2011. See this Zoochat thread: Southern Encounter Aquarium and Kiwi House (Closed) - Further Christchurch Earthquake North (New) Brighton Zoo and Aquarium [was also known as "The Mini Zoo"] (Christchurch) – opened in the 1940s or 50s; closed in August 1996 following the retirement of the owner. See this Zoochat thread: North Brighton Zoo - North Brighton "Mini" Zoo, historical review Birdlands (Little River, near Christchurch) – now closed as an animal collection, being instead a forest reserve. Salmon World (Rakaia) – an aquarium dedicated to salmon, opened 2010 and closed around 2015. See this article about its opening: Let's Travel - www.letstravelmag.com: Salmon World opens in Rakaia Moana Zoo (Moana, near Lake Brunner) – opened 1986; closed in 2000. See this Zoochat thread: some history of the Moana Zoo (1986-2000) Hadlow Game Park (Timaru) – opened 1973; closed in April 1986. See this Zoochat thread: some history of Hadlow Game Park, Timaru (now closed) Landon Creek Bird Sanctuary (north of Oamaru) – closed by the SPCA due to animal neglect in October 2010. See this Zoochat thread: Landon Creek Bird Sanctuary - Landon Creek Bird Sanctuary Westpac Trust Aquarium / NZ Marine Studies Centre [also known as Portobello Aquarium] (Dunedin) – opened in the 1930s; closed to the public in June 2012 due to the building being unsafe, following the earthquakes in Christchurch. A new public aquarium in Dunedin has been mooted. See this Zoochat thread: Portobello Aquarium - aquarium closed to public The Reservation Animal Park and Zoological Gardens (Gore) – opened in 1998, zoo licence obtained in 2003, seems to have stopped being a zoo after a fire in 2010 [although they seemed to have mostly been a petting zoo in reality], and the property is now a B&B with a collection of farm animals.
