Kiwis for kiwi - Ross Halpin

Why Kiwi?

Having travelled and lived across the globe, Ross has long enjoyed being referred to as a ‘proud Kiwi’. So doing something to save our icon makes all the sense in the world. And a recent adventure to te Urewera reinforced just how majestic our country is. “We are so blessed to have this magnificent home. We all need to do what we can to leave it in better shape than we found it. For me that includes helping to grow the profile and the number of kiwi.”

High Points

Low Point

Every time we find a predator in one of our traps it reminds me of the massive challenge we have in eradicating the rats, weasels, stoats, ferrets, possums, cats and dogs that kill our beautiful native species.

Thoughts for The Future

“I want my kids, and their kids, and their kids,… to cherish our toanga. For that to happen I need to impress upon them the importance and value of the work that so many community and iwi groups are doing today. I’m wildly optimistic about our chances. We have so many wonderful people involved already. We just need to energise and engage the rest of the population. After all, we’re all in this together. Kiwis for kiwi!”
