How you can help endangered kiwi

Our fuzzy little friends need looking after, so they'll be around for generations to come. Here's how you can do your bit:

Be a responsible pet owner. We all love our pets, but they can be a threat to kiwi, so here's what you can do:

  • Keep cats indoors as much as possible, especially at night

  • Never take your dog in areas where kiwi live

  • When walking your dog, keep it on a short lead

  • Take your dog to kiwi aversion training

Support local kiwi recovery projects.

All over New Zealand, there are groups working to help kiwi survive and thrive. Help out your local group by volunteering, fundraising, or sponsoring a kiwi chick. You could:

  • Bake kiwi cookies and sell them to raise funds

  • Run a kiwi themed mufti day at school for a gold coin

  • Do a kiwi coin trail at school

School Holidays Programmes

Rainbow Springs often runs school holiday programmes so keep a beady eye out on our website for what's coming up.  These don't run during the summer holidays.
