Yum – our ostrich are tucking in to some crisp green leaves! 🌿
This delicious greenery comes courtesy of the Browse team at Auckland Zoo – who do an amazing job behind the scenes collecting fresh food for our animals.
Browse is a mix of suitable branches sourced with each animals tastes taken into consideration, and our Zoo crew source this daily – with some of it coming from helpful members of the public, like yourselves.
We have three ostrich at our zoo – two females Tajo and Nonami and our male Fluffy who you may remember from our vet team’s recent #TakeoverTuesday
when he received a health check.
If you are going to cut any large branches on your property, send us a private message and we’ll check with the browse team and if suitable can arrange a day for collection!
