Hamilton Zoo will be closed for the day on Tuesday 26 November.
The zoo is hosting a professional development event for our zoo keeping team and fellow zoo professionals from around New Zealand.
Hamilton Zoo will re-open on Wednesday 27 November, however, some training sessions will still be taking place, so animal encounters and keeper talks will be unavailable on that day.
With our January outdoor water use up 30% on last year, Hamiltonians are urged to be mindful of their water usuage to avoid further water restrictions. Sprinkler monitors are now out and about and anyone who notices water being wasted is encouraged to report it.
Please tell your friends and neibours,not to walk there dogs in the heat,as so many are getting burnt pads on there feet.
