To request support or advice from John Bissell, Kiwis for kiwi’s National Predator Advisor, please fill out the form below.

If your request is urgent (e.g. to address a predator incursion that has the ability to directly impact kiwi in the short term), please contact Scratch Jansen on with ‘URGENT National Kiwi Advisor assistance required: incursion response’ in the subject line.

Please note: due to limited hours every month, all requests through this portal will be assessed by priority, with Jobs for Nature-funded projects taking top priority. Where possible, we will do our best to provide some level of support for every request within the allocated hours John works with Kiwis for kiwi. If this is not possible, please directly contact John at Backblocks by emailing who may have availability to assist you outside of the scope of his work with Kiwis for kiwi.
