Nature Wildlife Heritage Explore & Learn Family – friendly Affordable FUN
At EcoWorld we give you outstanding, intimate experiences. Our knowledgeable staff help you discover and have fun, sharing with you some of New Zealand's amazing native animals that live in our beautiful Marlborough Sounds.
“New Zealand is a “Biological Ark”. Our biodiversity (variety of all life) is more primitive than most other countries. 80% of New Zealand's native species are found nowhere else on Earth. Most of EcoWorld's animals come from the Marlborough Sounds whose nearshore rocky reefs are diverse, dynamic, capable of endless surprise, cold, murky, dark and difficult to visit. These nearshore rocky reefs provide haven for rare and endangered species which contributes to their fascination which we share with you.” John Reuhman Director
