We need your help – donate today to help save the kiwi

Aotearoa used to be home to millions of kiwi. Today, there are only 68,000. Save the Kiwi is on a mission to rebuild the kiwi population – but we need your help. Can you imagine New Zealand without the kiwi? Neither can we. Please join the cause to save the kiwi.

$100 could help protect one kiwi

95% of kiwi chicks that hatch in unprotected areas will never reach adulthood. Most kiwi chicks that are killed in the wild die in the jaws of stoats – public enemy number one to kiwi chicks.

Just $100 could help provide bait, lures, and other trapping equipment so volunteer trappers can continue protecting their local environment.

To guarantee the future population growth of the kiwi, the Save the Kiwi Endowment Fund gives generous donors the opportunity to directly invest into the future of our national icon. Managed by Jarden and supported by patrons Sir John Key and Helen Clark, the Save the Kiwi Endowment Fund will ensure that predator control, training, the development of more kōhanga sites and incubation and crèching facilities, and other kiwi conservation initiatives will be guaranteed long into the future.
