Over its 100 years, Auckland Zoo has evolved from its early days as a ‘living museum’ into a modern zoo that takes an active role in conserving wildlife in Aotearoa New Zealand and around the world. 

Auckland Zoo: 100 Years, 100 Stories showcases the Zoo’s rich and colourful history: from its fraught origins in Onehunga (with complaints of roaring lions!) to its established home in Western Springs.

You’ll discover a diverse collection of captivating stories — personal accounts of former staff who lived within the Zoo grounds; unexpected animal adventures; stories behind beloved heritage features like Cedric the dragon; day-to-day life at the Zoo (how do you anesthetise a flamingo?); and insights into the groundbreaking conservation work by the Zoo and its partners.


All profits from the sale of this book go towards wildlife conservation.
