Zealandia Gains International Recognition

Zealandia, formally the Kaori Sanctuary, based in Wellington, has been named in British newspaper The Guardian’s Green Travel List 2010. The List aims to give recognition to companies worldwide that have shown commitment to both their community and the environment.

More than 200 travel and tourism companies across the globe were surveyed for the Green Travel List. They were judged on what action they took to limit their carbon footprint, promote water conservation, biodiversity conservation and waste management.

Zealandia Chief Executive, Nancy McIntosh-Ward said, "it's a great recognition of Zealandia's international reputation as a model eco-tourism attraction, and the ground breaking work we have done to bring many of New Zealand's rarest species back to the mainland.”

Designworks helped the Kaori Sanctuary rebrand itself into Zealandia with the aim of elevating it from a much-loved local attraction to an internationally recognised eco-tourism destination. The acknowledgment from an overseas newspaper is therefore a fantastic achievement for the sanctuary.
