Ever wondered what our tuatara looks like close-up and personal? Come and meet Orana Wildlife Park's tuatara Kevin at the Christchurch DOC Visitors Centre co located with the i-SITE at the Arts Centre on the 20th December 2017 between 10-1pm to help celebrate the Arts Centre's

#12DaysOfChch promotion.

Did you know that tuatara are not even a lizard but their own order entirely? While these guys are so unique and recognisable, they are also at risk like many of our endemic species from a variety of introduced mammalian predators. The tuatara are particularly vulnerable in the presence of rats and mice who eat the same food as the tuatara and eat the eggs from these very slow breeding adults.

What about our other threatened species? See if you can guess the names of the birds in our display. Come and join our amazing rangers and learn more about what we can do together to save our unique animals from sliding further towards extinction. Together, we can make a difference.
