Adopt a Kiwi
Since 2005 East Taranaki Environment Trust has been growing the kiwi population in Taranaki.
Our Conservation project in Pūrangi, East Taranaki is a success story and has become a national stronghold for the future of the Western Brown Kiwi.
Over 13, 000 hectares is now home to over 4000 kiwi and our on-going predator control work allows the population to continue to increase. To enable us to continue this important work costs an estimated $45 per hectare.
This is one of the largest volunteer driven environment schemes in New Zealand.
We know people are keen to support our iconic kiwi. Whether you are a business or an individual you can help to protect and keep kiwi in Taranaki.
Supporting our birds is a unique way to help preserve our Taranaki wildlife and share the project with your family, friends, employees, customers and other stakeholders.
These birds are truly magnificent and they need our help to survive and thrive in Taranaki. By supporting one of our birds, you are making a real difference.
