3rd February 2018 Kiwi chick scheduled for release on 6 February

Join us for a kiwi release on Waitangi Day; little kiwi chick named Hākari is scheduled for release on Rotoroa Island on Tuesday 6th February.

Details as follows:

When: Tuesday 6 Feb at 11am
What's happening: A short kiwi encounter with Auckland Zoo Ranger and (hopefully) the chance to meet Hākari (which means celebration), the newest kiwi chick to make Rotoroa it's home.
Location: Exhibition Centre, Home Bay

This will be followed by our summer guided walk encounter, a free one and a half-hour guided tour with the zoo ranger - it's a fabulous insight into the wildlife programme.

Ferry tickets are available through 360 Discovery Cruises or by calling +64 9 307 8005
