Supporting a zoo and wildlife centre

Supporting business with cars featuring the zoo's brand color
Since 2012, MMNZ has been providing Mazda cars based on a partnership agreement with Auckland Zoo,* a not-for-profit wildlife conservation organization that is focused on conserving and building a future for wildlife, both in New Zealand and around the world.
MMNZ has been providing three vehicles for Auckland Zoo to use. The latest vehicles—Mazda3, CX-8, and BT-50—have received a distinctive orange wrap to further enhance and co-ordinate with the Zoo's branding.
Auckland Zoo is home to the largest collection of native and exotic wildlife species in New Zealand (over 1,400 animals and 135 species). The Mazda3, CX-8, and BT-50 transport animals and help with day-to-day operations on site, and are also used by staff to conduct field conservation work.
In addition, MMNZ offers financial support for 15 classes from local schools to visit the Auckland Zoo to learn about animals and the environment.
Auckland Zoo, which attracts over 500,000 visitors annually, is regarded as one of the world's most progressive zoos.
