Congratulations Wellington Zoo who have just been named the winner of the inaugural World Associations of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) Environmental Sustainability Award! This global award was received at the WAZA conference dinner in Bangkok on Thursday night.
CEO Karen Fifield says “This award belongs to everyone who has supported us making Wellington Zoo one of the most sustainable in the world and a true leader in this area. The judges said that not only do we walk the talk but we engage with others to lead the way and support their journeys for sustainability.
At Wellington Zoo we are guided by our kaupapa: Me tiaki, kia ora! We must look after our environment, so all things will flourish. This world-first accolade from WAZA truly recognises this Wellington Zoo spirit!”
Congratulations to Glen Reddiex, Karen Fifield and the rest of the Wellington Zoo team. We’re proud to be working alongside you and grateful for the environmental leadership you provide.
