Poll: Should Wellington Zoo replace its Lions?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Wellington Zoo’s elderly lioness sisters, Djane and Zahra, have been euthanised, leaving the zoo with no lions.
Both lionesses had been closely monitored by veterinary staff over the past 18 months due to age-related health concerns, and Djane’s health recently deteriorated.
Lions have been part of Wellington Zoo community since it opened in 1906, when the Zoo was gifted a male lion called King Dick.
Wellington Zoo said it would look at starting a new pride of lions in the future, but it was likely to be awhile until a firm plan was in place.
If you do not want your comments used by Stuff, please put NFP.

$30m cultural and arts centre proposed for Porirua.

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Do you support a $30m cultural centre for Porirua?
Ratepayers are being asked to give their views on the idea as part of Porirua City Council's draft Long-term Plan (LTP) 2021-2051 which is out for consultation until April 27.
Should the project – which the council plans to be debt-funded to the tune of $24m – get the green light, the average rates bill would increase by $101.54 a year from 2024/2025.
