Big day at zoo
An Easter holiday programme at Auckland Zoo will offer some insights into the wonderful world of pachyderms.
Children visiting the zoo can take part in Operation Pachyderm, a challenge to gather information about the zoo’s elephants.
There will also be free daily shows and walks around the zoo with elephants Kashin and Burma as well as scheduled elephant encounters.
Those interested in becoming agents of Operation Pachyderm should go to the zoo’s main plaza for their directions and code words for their mission.
Each day will begin with free shows at 10.45am and 11.45am at the elephant enclosure.
