Currently 95% of kiwi chicks die in the wild
It is a sad fact that in unprotected areas, 95% of kiwi chicks, under the age of 3, die in the wild. Many are killed by predators like stoats or dogs, so with trapping and education, these deaths are preventable. With predator control, the survival rate of kiwi is lifted from a mere 5% to over 50% - more than enough for the population to flourish.
We have proven success in protected areas
Our efforts in the field are proving successful. In areas where kiwi are protected and predators are controlled by dedicated kiwi volunteers and community groups, kiwi are thriving. With your donation, we can reverse the declining kiwi population.
