Auckland Zoo's elephants to remain in NZ for longer due to Covid-19

Melanie Earley Reporter from Central Leader

Kia ora neighbours, Auckland Zoo’s resident elephants, who were due to be moved to Australia this Spring, will stay in Auckland until 2022 due to Covid-19.

The zoo announced its decision to re-home the elephants in November 2020, saying it had been made to give them the “family herd” they needed for their long-term well being.

Auckland Zoo said the bursting of the trans-Tasman bubble and the Covid-19 lockdowns, meant the “complicated” moves couldn’t progress as planned.

What are you looking forward to at the traffic light system?

Josephine Franks Reporter from Central Leader

Kia ora neighbours, the traffic lights are in sight and we'd love to know what you're most looking forward to once Aucklanders have more freedom. Maybe it's being reunited with family outside Auckland, going to the pub, or just being able to hang out inside a friend's house (and use their loo!). Comment below to share your thoughts - use NFP if you don't want it published - or email josephine.franks@stuff.co.nz
