Kiwis for kiwi has produced a range of very useful resources full of practical information about what we can do to help save kiwi:
Guide to Establishing a new kiwi population
This document has been produced by Wendy Sporle and is a fantastic starting point if you wish to establish a population on your land. The Guide to Establishing a New Kiwi Population has been designed specifically with private landowners, community groups and iwi groups in mind. Providing an overview and understanding on what is necessary to make this a reality.
‘How to Save Kiwi’ DVD
The How to Save Kiwi DVD provides basic tutorials and information about the suite of challenges and opportunities we face in trying to save kiwi – from stopping dog deaths and controlling predators, to how to manage plantation forests.
It is aimed at volunteers and agencies that are involved in on-the-ground work, and can also be used to train others.
Whatever your angle, we recommend viewing chapter 1 first – All about kiwi – as it provides a good overview and introduction to the work.
The DVD has been produced by Kiwis for kiwi, in association with New Zealand Kiwi Foundation, and with support from the Department of Conservation
Watch the full DVD in the video gallery.

Sustainable management of brown kiwi and other threatened birds in Northland
This 2006 report was prepared for the Department of Conservation and NZ Landcare Trust. It provides a regional context for putting the Kiwi Recovery Plan and the Kiwi Best Practice Manual into practice, by providing guidance to all stakeholders and interested parties involved with kiwi in Northland.
