Project Kiwi Trust works on the Kuaotunu Peninsula and coordinates a programme of initiatives with the support of volunteers to save the North Island brown kiwi.The Trust coordinates a range of programmes to control predators through trapping, and to understand and monitor the biodiversity of the Kuaotunu Peninsula. The aim is to increase the survival rate of the kiwi chicks to ensure that the kiwi population remains stable and grows.
