Taranaki Kiwi Trust

Taranaki Kiwi Trust is a charitable trust working across Taranaki to protect Western Brown Kiwi in the wild.

The trust received funding of $6,727.50 to replace 130 pest traps so it can provide better protection for kiwis against stoats, the number one killer of kiwi chicks.

The kiwi is New Zealand’s iconic national bird, yet they are considered nationally vulnerable and without help and predator control, are likely to be extinct in the wild within two generations.
