The Seafield Wildlife Park has been offering an chance to get up close with small animals and birds for over 30 years.

During the 70s it peformed an important role in preserving several rare breeds of animal including Arapawa Island goats (old English goats) and Arapawa Island pigs (Oxford sandy pigs), both introduced there by Captain Cook. These, along with Arapawa Island sheep and Pitt Island sheep are now extinct in their country of origin.

Today the park only keeps a few examples of these animals but you can still see Arapawa sheep and kune kune pig as well as other small animals such as rabbits.

There are several aviaries of birds such as doves, and an assortment of chickens, geese, ducks and peacocks roam free in the park.

Please treat all wildlife with respect and care and do not feed the birds.
