Applications for funding to support the work of our community conservation groups has now closed for this year. However it’s not too late to make a donation to support the vital work of the 100+ kiwi projects that are the backbone of saving kiwi from extinction.

The annual funding round is an opportunity for groups from around Aotearoa to apply to Kiwis for kiwi for funds to support the work that they are doing on the ground to help protect kiwi and their habitats.

A growing army of volunteers and private landowners, who are alarmed at the prospect of our national icon being destroyed by invading stoats, wild cats and dogs, possums and rats, are working hard to make their properties predator free.

Community action is pivotal to achieving a turnaround of the declining kiwi population. We know that kiwi numbers are growing in areas where work is being done to manage their habitats.

Last year we were able to grant over $500,000 to support these groups. To view last year’s allocation of funding please click here or if you want to support those groups this year by making a donation please click here.

The work that the 100+ community conservation groups do is essential to keeping kiwi safe, and these grants are only made possible thanks to the amazing commitment and contribution of our supporters. A heartfelt thank you to you all.
