It’s a bugs life in a Mazda BT-50

Mazda New Zealand has just supplied a brand new BT-50 double cab pick up to the Auckland Zoo for the transportation of staff and animals around the North Island.

The two organisations have been working in partnership since 2012 and Mazda New Zealand managing director Andrew Clearwater says both share the same common goals towards conservation.

The new BT-50 wears a distinctive digitally printed vehicle wrap with species of giant weta emblazoned all over the body.

Its first official task was transporting 324 wētā punga, bred at Auckland Zoo, to a forest habitat in The Noises group of islands in the Hauraki Gulf by the Ectotherms team.

Auckland Zoo attracts more than 700,000 visitors annually and enjoys a reputation as one of the world’s most progressive zoos. As a not-for-profit wildlife conservation organisation, it is focused on conserving and building a future for wildlife, both here in New Zealand, and around the world.
