Making every day better for orangutans – the journey of the South East Asia Precinct at Auckland Zoo
Matt Wheeler is the project director for a transformational development at the heart of Auckland Zoo – the South East Asia Precinct (SEAP.) Matt is a senior leader at Beca charged with overall responsibility for the successful delivery of the programme. The Auckland Zoo is underway with a significant physical transformation reflecting new approaches to animal care and to visitor experiences. There is a ten year programme of physical transformation work underway, with SEAP being the heart of the programme and the geographical heart of the zoo. Matt will provide an overview of the Zoo’s mission, describe the SEAP project including the challenges and fun along the way, plus tell a story about how involvement in the project inspired him to make a difference toward making every day better for Orangutans.

Matt is the Business Director of Beca’s Project Strategy and Delivery Business – the home of project and cost advisory. He is passionate about improving experiences for Aucklanders and visitors to Auckland. He is currently leading the Aotea Centre refurbishment and the New Zealand Maritime Museum Masterplan. In his spare time he can be found on Kawau Island supporting various conservation activities, or helping ferry his kids around town to their various activities!
