The All Blacks were great sports about meeting our lions face-to-face (or at least that's what they thought we were doing!). Here they are hanging onto every word of the safety briefing by our Carnivores team leader, Lauren.

If you want to help wildlife in the wild AND get your paws on a signed special edition All Blacks jersey, check out our Trade Me auction here: http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1355345663

Without clear labelling, you can't make an informed choice! If you're a wildlife-friendly shopper, visit unmaskpalmoil.com/aucklandzoo to tell our government that you want palm oil labelled on the food that you buy.
