Your donation will help us expand protected kiwi areas, where predator control gives both young and adult birds a much better chance of survival. Thank you.
How Your Donation Will help
$100 could provide predator control over 10ha for an entire year – enough to protect a kiwi.
$30 could buy a trap to support predator control in kiwi habitat.
$50 could ensure a kiwi chick hatched in captivity is in perfect health before it is released back to the wild.
Dogs are the number one threat to adult kiwi, and a roaming dog can virtually wipe out a population in a short period of time. $75 is enough to protect a kiwi from a roaming dog using kiwi avoidance training.
Operation Nest Egg is a fantastic way to boost kiwi numbers and will be a key programme over the next few years. The first step is to track the male kiwi to identify when he’s sitting on an egg. $350 could buy a transmitter to help us do this.
These chicks have a 65% chance of survival, compared to 5% if hatched in unprotected areas. A donation of $1,200 could cover all of the nest monitoring, transmitter and monthly checks for a chick for an entire year.
