Due to COVID-19, the New Zealand Government has called for the closure of non-essential businesses.
Therefore, Willowbank will be closed from midnight Monday 23 March until further advice is received from the Government and healthcare officials.
At Willowbank, the welfare of our staff, wildlife and visitors is paramount.
While we will not be open to the public, a small number of dedicated staff will continue to ensure that our animals receive the highest levels of care.
We appreciate your support and understanding during this unprecedented time.
Please keep safe and we look forward to welcoming you back to Willowbank in the near future.
