Recently, One News spoke to Wellington Zoo Chief executive Karen Fifield  who has been selected to lead a team of sustainable experts along with the United Nations.

The objective of the project is to see how Zoo’s can be more sustainable, ethical and energy efficient. How great is that!

Wellington Zoo have also dedicated a lot of time towards strengthening the connections between local communities, the environment and wildlife. They hope by doing so, aroha (love) and kaitiakitanga (guardianship) to be more sustainable will flourish.

Congratulations and a big round of a paws for Wellington Zoo for joining Ecotricity!
