Where: ZEALANDIA Eco-Sanctuary, Waiapu Road, Karori, Wellington

Restrictions: All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Admission: Free


Tuatara once lived throughout New Zealand, but have survived on offshore islands and in sanctuaries. At Zealandia, we have a booming population that thrives in the absence of introduced mammals.

Five of our tuatara were rehabilitated at Victoria University Wellington and are now ready to come home and be released back into the sanctuary.

Join Zealandia staff and iwi representatives for the special moment when these incredible animals scuttle back into the wild.

Free with admission

February is tuatara month at Zealandia. Come along to one of our events and find out what makes tuatara so special. Get closer than ever before to a tuatara and explore the sanctuary to see them in their natural habitat.
