Sponsor a Kiwi

You are here: Kiwi Conservation » Sponsor a Kiwi

The Brown kiwi is rapidly declining in numbers on the New Zealand Mainland, with the kiwi population halving about every 10 years. The conservation programme that Kiwi Encounter is a part of, aims to try and slow the decline of kiwi, and hopefully turn kiwi numbers around.

Kiwi Encounter has established a charitable trust – the National Kiwi Trust – to assist with raising funds to help with the kiwi recovery work being done by Kiwi Encounter. Sponsorship of the Kiwi Encounter facility also helps with research into kiwi incubation and rearing techniques.
