National Aquarium of New Zealand Expansion Project
Work is progressing with the National Aquarium Redevelopment, which is now known as Project Shapeshifter: Redefining our National Aquarium. The full business case is currently being prepared and we hope to have this submitted to the Government by November. In the preparation of the detailed business case, we are about to carry out extensive engagement with a large number of stakeholders. Further information will be made publicly available as the concept unfolds.
What is Project Shapeshifter?
The expansion of the aquarium is known as Project Shapeshifter: Redefining our National Aquarium. This name is emblematic of Māui – the ‘shapeshifter’ and great East Polynesian ancestor-explorer of the Pacific Ocean. Our challenge is to be bold and adventurous like Māui – to be a shapeshifter and game-changer.
Our vision is to create an iconic destination that all New Zealanders will be proud of. A memorable experience that centres Aotearoa New Zealand as the environmental champion for Papatūānuku planet earth and her oceans.
