Resources - Header Image

We’ve collected some of the best resources and information available to support people working to help save kiwi. You’ll find links to them here.

A lot of great information can be found in our “How to Save Kiwi” guide. Click here to view it on our youtube channel.

Whenever we find a new resource we know will help kiwi conservationists, we add it to the toolbox. Please contact if you:

  • have, or know of, any good resources or information that aren’t yet here
  • would like a link to your kiwi group added to links and other resources
  • would like our help to track down specific information – if it doesn’t exist already, we may be able to develop it
  • have any ideas for activities we can add to the Kiwi classroom

The Department of Conservation Skillable youtube channel has a range of training videos to teach you everything from setting a DOC 200 trap to using a data logger.
