We're part of a nationwide kiwi captive management programme, and this month our kiwi, Mahina, is going to be relocated to the South Island to be paired for breeding. From time to time, kiwi are transferred between institutions to support conservation outcomes that include increasing wild kiwi population numbers.
Now we’re in COVID-19 Alert Level 1, we’re pleased to advise that shark feeding in the main oceanarium recommences for visitors to enjoy every day at 2pm, along with our interactive activities available throughout the aquarium.
