Koru Native Wildlife Centre
Meet the Creepy, Crawly and the Sassy
To avoid disappointment it is essential to book your visit for either the morning between 10.00am till 12.00pm, or the afternoon opening times between 13.00pm till 15.00pm on Monday to Friday.
Based in beautiful Marlborough, we specialize in breeding and housing some of New Zealand’s more uncommonly found and threatened native species. At this stage we hold Yellow Crowned Käkäriki, Giant Weta and seven species of geckos.
We welcome visitors to Koru Native Wildlife Centre to meet and learn about our creepy, crawly and sassy native species. Check out the Koru Native Wildlife Centre’s specially built enclosures to learn fascinating facts about our native animals, and the efforts to restore their natural habitats.
Your hosts, Ellen and Brian Plaisier, have more than 20 years of experience in restoring native habitat, and more recently in native animal husbandry. We are passionate about New Zealand’s incredible biodiversity and will provide a genuine, personal insight to the efforts being made to restore our stunning natural environment..
