The kiwi is a biological oddity and full of character. More than any other native animal, they are entwined in our identity as New Zealanders.
It is unthinkable that kiwi should be allowed to disappear – the world would lose an intriguing bird genetically unchanged for millions of years.
Saving kiwi brings communities together, creates employment and helps restore native forests where many other native species also live, and therefore also benefit.
Trust-supported restoration plantings also help lock carbon away, improve air and water quality, prevent erosion, and build healthy soils – the list goes on.
It’s win–win all the way.
