Wellington Zoo is committed to saving animals in the wild. At the heart of this commitment is the conservation that permeates everything we do, both at the Zoo and for the programmes we support around the world. We are looking for a passionate, motivated Conservation Manager to ensure our Zoo continues to build its reputation and capability in conservation.
