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.
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.
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.
