    Finally commonsense has prevailed. Chances are, turnover might just go through the roof with admission charges at this level. $17.50 for an adult, how much for a child, given not every family today is a ‘traditional’ one?

    Lets hope this signals the start of a real culture change at Zealandia.

    It would be great if Zealandia adopts Wellington Zoo’s style of providing timely and accurate information about the condition of their animals. Two or three years on from the demise of the 9 weka at Zealandia, I’m none the wiser as to how they died. Back in May 2012 Zealandia wrote to the Sunday Times stating that the weka died from natural causes (either drought or bad genes), but later that year they published a bird species list in which it is mentioned that an accident was also involved.

    Does this matter? Sure it does: either Zealandia had healthy birds that died by accident / bad management, or Zealandia had weka stock that were biologically compromised. I would like to know which of these alternatives is correct.
