Mission Statement

Our vision is to preserve wildlife through conservation, education and research. Aware that the zoo of tomorrow begins today, our staff and volunteers are dedicated to providing a naturalistic and enriching sanctuary for our animals, and a clean, friendly, entertaining and educational experience for our guests.

We strive to conserve species and habitats, and to inspire and empower people to help in the fight to protect wildlife.

We achieve this through:


Inspiration and empowerment of our guests to join our conservation culture and actively participate in conservation of the natural world.

Local Conservation

Practical conservation and sustainment of local habitats and species.

Global conservation

Providing leadership, training, expertise, technical support and crucial funds to our overseas conservation partners.


Campaigning and advocating for wildlife and the natural world with key organisations and decision makers.

Our world class facilities provide an opportunity for our guests to have a unique encounter with our animals throughout the Zoo with highly skilled, trained and passionate staff available at all times.

Our passion to serve our guests extends throughout our zoo to include a gift shop, playground facilities, Function Centre and Café that enhance the experience during their visit.
