Zoo’s orangutans on the move

August 23, 2017

In late September this year Auckland Zoo’s three Bornean orangutans, male Charlie and females Melur and Wanita, are moving south to Orana Wildlife Park for a two-year stay ahead of construction of a major new precinct for South East Asian wildlife.

​​​​​​​Origin is very proud to be working on this huge $50m two-year development. In the heart of the Zoo, the development is due to start in a few months’ time. It is part of a $120m 10-year redevelopment programme being funded through Auckland Council’s long-term plan, and becomes the largest project in Auckland Zoo’s 95-year history.

We’ll have more on this over the months to come.
