Auckland Zoo Ranger Academy

Auckland Zoo July Holidays

African savannah

Home to giraffe, zebra, ostrich, meerkats, leopard tortoises and African masked lovebirds, the new African savannah brings Auckland Zoo visitors closer than ever to wildlife, in an environment that offers a real sense of adventure.

With the anticipation of school holidays coming up, you’re probably thinking about what sorts of activities you can do with your children to keep them entertained. Auckland Zoo has this problem covered with the recently opened African savannah offering plenty of excitement.

A key part of our work at Auckland Zoo, as an organisation that cares for and helps conserve wildlife, is to engage visitors with the wonder of the natural world. We believe this new African savannah habitat will provide powerful opportunities for people to connect with, and fall in love with, some of the world’s most amazing and endangered wildlife. We want people to be inspired to help ensure these animals’ future.

Ranger Academy

These July holidays, complete an adventurous self-guided training course through Auckland Zoo’s African savannah to graduate from the Zoo’s Ranger Academy!

There are six great challenges (from fitness and monitoring animal movements, to animal identification and poaching prevention) to practice on your training course – These are all key skills and conservation knowledge rangers must possess to help animals in the wild.

Rangers ‘Rae’ and ‘Raf’ will be there to guide you through and give you pointers along the way to help you become an official ranger.

Auckland Zoo’s Ranger Academy runs from Saturday 9 July 2016 – Sunday 24 July 2016
