Auckland Zoo has been connecting New Zealanders with wildlife for a century, says Newshub. Now a new series is taking viewers behind the scenes to experience the incredible mahi of Zoo experts and the extraordinary animals they care for. Wild Heroes, on channel Three, follows Zoo professionals both onsite at the Zoo (today home to more than 2,200 and 137 different species) and out into the wilds of Aotearoa New Zealand. “Wild Heroes highlights some of the stuff that Auckland Zoo is doing that isn’t part of the traditional sort of a Zoo image,” says David Hodge, Managing Director of Mazda NZ which has partnered with Auckland Zoo for over a decade.
