Loud music among the Zoo animals late into the night

Francesca from Melrose

Wellington Zoo has an outdoor venue among the animal cages where live bands and DJs blare music late into the night. I can hear it very clearly from my home.

The Zoo is generally quiet from very early evening and through the night. The animals will be used to the dark and quiet at this time, where they get some respite from being caged entertainment. But every now and then the evening brings more human harassment in the form of fantastically loud music and often chattering or yelling humans, that subjects these animals to further stress, sometimes until after midnight.
The Zoo told me this is done to make money. It’s punishment on top of punishment for animals, dressed up as both fun and conservation. It makes my skin crawl hearing this in our neighbourhood.
If you’re confused about the conservation façade, read from the many experts and research to understand that Zoos are really just recreation. And not for the animals.
Why does Wellington Zoo need to make it even worse?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

The grey pavement, sky, and drizzling rain are no match for the fluorescent orange figure grooving to unheard music on the side of Wellington's Evans Bay Parade.
