Current exhibition

Wild Ōtautahi - Exploring the wildlife of our city (20 March - 20 June 2021)

Inspired by Gavin Bishop’s illustrations from his book Wildlife of Aotearoa this exhibition tells a story about the wildlife habitats of Ōtautahi. Gavin’s original illustrations of the bush, the rivers, the wetlands, the estuary, the sand dunes and the sea provide the context to explore the richness and fragility of these local habitats and species living in them.

Through engaging storyboards and gadgets, borrowed from conservation’s shed, this exhibition is an opportunity to expand your knowledge about local natives, how to protect them and make them thrive.
