On Wednesday, Tui and Kiwi hub visited the Zoo. Despite the rainy forecast, the children got to see a lot of the animals in their enclosures.
Here's what some of the children had to say what they enjoyed most about the zoo.
Seeing the red pandas with a keeper talk.
Going inside the tropical dome as it was nice and warm.
Seeing the pregnant tiger and seeing it come past the glass.
Meerkats, otters as they glided through the water.
Rhinos, Serval, Captain the cockatoo the kiwi and keeper talk about the kiwis.
Zoo educators teaching us about the lions and giraffe behaviour and physical adaptations.
Saw the orangutans and siamangs and cheetahs up really close as we were the only ones in the zoo.
Also hearing the siamangs calling that we could hear all over the zoo.
The kea were very playful.
