Breeding and raising some of New Zealand’s threatened native species
Koru Native Wildlife Centre is located in the beautiful Marlborough province near Blenheim.
Visit us at our Grovetown base for a rare chance to see our brightly coloured Yellow Crowned Kākāriki, fascinating Giant Weta and Marlborough Green Geckos up close, and learn more about them.
Book your tour to learn fascinating facts about our native animals and find out about the efforts to restore their natural habitats, in a friendly and relaxed setting.
Koru Native Wildlife Centre is operated by the charitable Tui Nature Wildlife Trust. Your hosts, Brian and Ellen Plaisier, have a long history of restoring native habitat in Marlborough, and more recently in native animal husbandry.
We are passionate about New Zealand’s incredible biodiversity and will provide a genuine, personal insight to the efforts being made to restore our stunning natural environment.
