I spend a lot of my time at Auckland Zoo so that is what I am used to. When I came to Wellington Zoo, I realized straight away that many of the enclosures were very small and not so natural. Especially ones like the sun bear enclosure, that just brought tears to my eyes. And the serval enclosure looked more like a bird aviary to me and the poor cat was pacing over and over again.
However, I really did enjoy the giraffes and how I got to feed them like I do in Auckland. The nocturnal kiwi house was also very neat and I really enjoyed the wild theater show, very interesting and educational. The staff and zoo keepers are very nice and always happy to help.
Overall, it was quite a good zoo, but I would like to see some improvement on some of the enclosures.
