NZ Society - Auckland Zoo (Part 1)

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:20 pm on 1 July 2011

New Zealand's biggest zoo is almost 90 years old. Auckland Zoo was officially opened in December 1922, and history relates it was a "bleak, uninspiring place". These days the zoo is a green and lush, and in the first of four programmes, David Steemson takes a look at the work of a modern zoo and its place in the 21st century.
