Kiwis for kiwi

Donate to save Kiwi

November brings the part of the year rowi rangers love best, when they get to bring the healthy young kiwi back home to Okarito forest. Amongst the 15 birds being released in 2011 were the two rowi named last year by Lynda and Jools Topp – ‘Pongo’ and ‘Dilly’. The Topp Twins wished their kiwi luck saying “Do us proud girls – go find yourselves a nice Kiwi bloke and multiply!” A fantastic way to round-off our year

Smitha and daughter Gauri release rowi 'Dilly' into her new burrow in north Okarito forest.
