Tuatara once lived throughout New Zealand, but have survived on offshore islands and in sanctuaries. At Zealandia, we have a thriving population.
Five of our tuatara are ready to come home and be released back into the sanctuary after spending time at Victoria University Wellington.
Join representatives from Zealandia and Ngāti Kōata for the special moment when these incredible animals scuttle back into the wild.
