Kiwi protection

Kiwis for kiwi has produced a range of very useful resources full of practical information about what we can do to help save kiwi:

Establishing or enhancing a kiwi population

This document has been created by Wendy Sporle & has been recently updated by Clea Gardiner. This fantastic starting point if you wish to establish a population on your land. Establishing or enhancing a 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

how-to-save-kiwi-dvdThe 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.
