New Zealand wildlife park receives award

Article content

28 October 2009

A popular tourist attraction in New Zealand has received industry recognition.

Rainbow Springs Kiwi Wildlife Park in Rotorua was named the winner of the Conservation in Action prize in the country's 2009 tourism awards.

The venue offers the only opportunity in the world for visitors to see up-close the efforts being made to conserve the kiwi.

More than 700 of the birds have been hatched for release back into the wild, while 12 other species of animal and bird can be seen.

The Tourism Industry Association New Zealand described the park as an attraction that "promotes conservation and educates visitors about New Zealand's natural heritage", while chief executive of the organisation Tim Cossar said winners of the awards are "an inspiration".

Praise for the country itself recently came from readers of the Guardian, who voted it to be the world's best long-haul destination in the publication's annual travel awards.
