Zealandia in the heart of Wellington City opened in 1995 after the erection of an 8.6 metre long predator proof-fence. The sanctuary has a 500 year plan to restore the reserve to how it would have appeared before humans arrived in New Zealand. It is already home to many endangered species of birds, plants and animals such as saddleback, tuatara, giant weta and little spotted kiwi.
