South East Asia Jungle Track
Exceptional habitats for our animals
The South East Asia Jungle Track, the biggest project in our 100-year history, is a $62m renewals programme being funded through Auckland Council’s long-term plan. Along with our lake and wetlands, this track across one-fifth of our Zoo, features a lowlands habitat for tigers and otters, high canopy primate habitat for orangutans and siamangs, and a swamp forest habitat for Sunda gharial (crocodile) and South East Asian fish species.
Highly immersive for animals and people, and unique to Aotearoa and globally, it is all about providing the best care for our animals and bringing animals together to give visitors a deep connection with nature and inspire a love and care for wildlife and each other.
As one of the most species-rich and threatened places on earth, Auckland Zoo is proud to be putting the spotlight on South East Asia wildlife. For 20 years we’ve been actively supporting conservation efforts that help wildlife in the wild that continue to make a positive difference, and as our visitors you are contributing to these efforts every time you visit!
