We’re giving one lucky pair the chance to come face to face with one of Auckland Zoo’s largest and longest-standing residents - our Asian elephant Burma. This is a huge opportunity (quite literally) you won’t want to miss!
Having joined us in 1990, Burma (who is now 37 years old and tipping the scales at 3 tonnes!) is the oldest of our two female elephants.
Whilst the Asian elephant is large in stature, unfortunately, its population isn’t so sizable. There are currently less than 35,000 wild elephants left, spread throughout just 13 of the 48 countries of Asia. As the human population continues to grow, the Asian elephants’ habitat continues to shrink, and numbers decline. Without our help, the next generation may never experience the magic of this magnificent mammal.
This is why we work tirelessly to raise community awareness and funding for the conservation of this endangered species. The Auckland Zoo Conservation Fund is helping to ensure the protection and preservation of the Asian elephant by supporting programmes in Sri Lanka and Sumatra.
With our Trade Me auction, you’ll have the chance to bid for an exclusive meet and greet with Burma herself AND contribute to our Wild Work!
Alongside our elephant keepers and a guest of your choice, you’ll spend time with Burma, discovering her unique personality and learning about her species, before helping with her daily bath.
The experience includes zoo entry for two people, behind-the-scenes access to meet Burma and her keepers, and a photo to remember it all by!
With your continued support, whether through zoo visits, donations or funding from experiences like these, we’re able to make a difference for wildlife in need around the world. So far, the Auckland Zoo Conservation Fund has donated more than $4 million dollars to conservation projects in Aotearoa and abroad.
T&C’s: For two guests, no minimum age requirement. Customers need to be physically able. Dates are subject to availability.
