The holiday season is a time for family, celebrations and fun in the sun. But it's also the perfect time to think of those who might need a bit of help.

For many children, Christmas isn't the special time that it should be. So this year, Hamilton Zoo want to make Christmas a little brighter by supporting Waikato Women's Refuge and the children in their care. 

Visitors and the wider community have the opportunity to donate as little or as much as they like to provide Waikato Women's Refuge with Zoo passes to give the women and children in their care, and Hamilton Zoo will match the value of every donation.

Donations are open from Friday 1 December to Sunday 24 December.


Together, we can help give a child in need an experience they'll always remember.
