A huge national kiwi conservation movement is under way, with more than 80 community-led kiwi conservation programmes, 5 DOC-managed kiwi sanctuaries, and more than 15 facilities displaying captive kiwi and/or incubating eggs as part of our flagship BNZ Operation Nest Egg programme.
Since 2002, we have allocated more than NZ$7 million to kiwi projects, and demand for funding is growing.
The Kiwi Trust’s number one priority is to raise more money for existing and new kiwi recovery projects, and to keep providing practical support and tools.
