The staff and volunteers at Zealandia have already created a space in which introduced animals have been eliminated, and are now working to make it free of introduced plants as well. It is a great chance to see an incredible variety of native animals, birds and insects roaming around their native habitat.
The information center has very interesting displays about New Zealand's indigenous flora and fauna, including a moving statue of a Giant Moa.
I found the display and video about the impact of humans in New Zealand to be a bit emotionally manipulative. I understand that this is a very important issue, but my wife and I were both a bit annoyed that we were being emotionally blackmailed into supporting it. The other displays provide more than enough factual information to convince visitors of the dangers faced by native animals and plants.
