Kiwi could disappear from our forests if we don’t work to save them now

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. Join the cause to return kiwi to where they used to live ... before it's too late.

$25 could feed a kiwi chick

While kiwi chicks stay at our incubation facility until they’re big enough to be released into the wild, they eat a special diet filled with vitamins and minerals that will help them thrive.

Just $25 will feed a kiwi chick for their entire stay, ensuring they’re in the best condition possible before they return to the wild.

Millennium Hotels and Resorts is proud to support Save the Kiwi in their efforts to protect kiwi from predators, nurture young kiwi and release kiwi back to areas where they once roamed freely. With Millennium, Copthorne, Kingsgate and M Social hotels located throughout New Zealand, Millennium understands the importance of preserving New Zealand’s unique wildlife – and we hope you’ll join the mission to save the kiwi too.
