Project Kiwi Trust works on the Kuaotunu Peninsula and coordinates a programme of initiatives with the support of volunteers to save the Coromandel brown kiwi.
What Project Kiwi does
The Trust coordinates a range of programmes to control predators, and to understand and monitor the biodiversity of the Kuaotunu Peninsula.
