2.6 Conservation attractions
Ngā painga kukume Papa Atawhai
Nature is one of Wellington’s biggest attractions.
What we do
- Wellington Zoo
These facilities play important conservation roles, protecting native and exotic flora and fauna. They inform and educate, attract visitors, and their existence creates economic incentives for the city’s environment to be protected and enhanced.
- Wellington Zoo will continue work on Meet the Locals, a New Zealand precinct that takes visitors on a journey from the south coast of Wellington, through farming regions, to the mountains of the South Island.
- We will provide $875,000 in funding for Zealandia to help secure its future as an important Wellington asset.
- The redirection of $627,000 into our economic development fund for projects that add to regional amenities could be applied to conservation attractions, where the business cases are considered appropriate.
Measuring our performanceTop
Our targets for 2014/15 are:
- at least 230,111 visitors to the Zoo10
- at least 93,430 visitors to Zealandia11
- at least 5,281 people will attend an education programme at Zealandia.
