Pledges For the Wild
Mr Munro the Fiordland Penguin

In June 2012, we gathered prints from many of our animals, including Mr Munro the Fiordland Penguin,  and shared them in a public statement For The Wild.

We also invited staff, volunteers, celebrities and our visitors to pledge their support For The Wild by adding their own handprint alongside the prints of our animals.

Check out this time lapse video of our For The Wild wall taking shape with the help of Zoo visitors.
