We need your help – donate today to help save the kiwiAotearoa 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.
Stoats and ferrets are the biggest threats to wild kiwi, but it can be hard to catch them. It's important that we have the best tools on the ground to make kiwi habitat safer.
$250 could buy one DOC 250 trap which is effective enough to kill a stoat or ferret. And one less stoat or ferret in the wild means the kiwi population is much safer.
Donate another amount
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.
Leave a gift in your will
Want to leave a legacy that will really make a difference? Leaving a gift in your will to Save the Kiwi is a wonderful way to contribute to the return of the kiwi all over New Zealand even when you’re not here to see it.
