Valentine's Night at Wellington Zoo - Adults only

Wellington Zoo will be open for over 17 year olds from 5pm - 8.30pm on Valentine's Night - Thursday, 14 February, 2008.

"It's a wonderful time to be here, very relaxing, the animals are more active in the cool of the evening and it's a romantic place to be," said Marina Greco, Wellington Zoo's Marketing and Events Co-ordinator.

"Our zoo keepers will be on hand to tell people all about the quirky nature of animal courtship, with special talks scheduled throughout the evening. We'll also have Rosa, a four piece acoustic band, playing mellow 80s covers in the Zoo's new Wild Theatre."

"Visitors are welcome to bring a picnic while enjoying a romantic stroll around Wellington Zoo, and the Zoo kiosk will be open selling beer and wine, as well as antipasto platters for a special Valentine's Night treat," said Marina
