Help Orana Wildlife Park Survive Covid-19
Any amount you can donate now will help us continue to meet the huge on-going costs of food and care for our 400 precious animals.Canterbury
As an animal lover, we are reaching out to you for help.
Orana Wildlife Park (a registered charity) is NZ’s only open range zoo that is home to over 70 species of endangered wildlife from NZ and the world, including NZ’s only Gorillas. Over 95% of our income is from visitor entry fees. During lockdown, like many organisations, we have no visitors and no income apart from the government’s partial wage subsidy (which covers only 40% of our essential operating costs).
Unlike many organisations, the high costs of maintaining the care and welfare of our 400 precious animals continues during lockdown. These costs are impossible to put on hold and include: enormous food bills (e.g. our lovely gorillas alone munch through $800 worth of vegetables every week), huge electricity bills to keep our animals warm in the cooler weather and essential veterinary costs. Our important NZ native conservation work continues, such as Kiwi chicks have recently hatched and must have access to heated brooder units in these crucial early stages.
Please help us continue caring for our beloved animals, many of which are endangered species, by making a donation now.
Stay safe and thanks for being a friend of Orana.
For over 40 years, Orana Wildlife Trust has operated Orana Wildlife Park. Our aim, along with being dedicated to the conservation of endangered species and the welfare of our animals, is to provide education, recreation and enjoyment to the public.
