Product Detail

Celebrate Auckland Zoo’s centenary with this limited edition t-shirt. 

To celebrate our 100th year, we’ve created an exclusive range of t-shirts featuring a selection of species under Auckland Zoo’s care, plus our special anniversary logo.


There are over 70 species of wētā unique to New Zealand, including 11 species of giant wētā, of which the wētāpunga is the largest.

This ecologically significant invertebrate has been around for 190 million years, but like the majority of our other endemic species, wētāpunga have struggled due to introduced predators.

Auckland Zoo, with our conservation partners, have now successfully released over 5,000 wētāpunga – a huge feat, after years of mastering the husbandry and understanding the science behind breeding this endemic species.

By purchasing this t-shirt, you’ll not only sport a unique design, but also help our conservation efforts for this important native species.

 

Available in two styles - Staple (traditional shape, standard length) and Maple (shorter sleeves and overall length).

Staple:  S-3XL
Maple:  XS-2XL
