Kiwi could disappear from our forests if we don’t work to save them nowAotearoa 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.
Dogs are one of the biggest risks to adult kiwi. That's because a kiwi’s skeleton is very fragile. Just a gentle nudge from an inquisitive dog - even a friendly dog - has the potential to crush it.
$50 could help a dog owner put their dog through kiwi avoidance training and reduce the likelihood of it harming a kiwi in 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.
