Coronavirus: Wellington Zoo to reopen with free tickets

From Morning Report, 7:54 am on 14 May 2020

The inhabitants of New Zealand's zoos have gone without their usual stream of visitors for the past seven weeks.

That's set to change, as zoos and wildlife parks reopen under Alert Level 2.

Wellington Zoo opens on Monday, and entry will be free until the end of June. Karen Fifield is the chief executive of Wellington Zoo.
