More kiwi for the Island

Date posted: 04-Apr-2017


In 1993 and 1995, sixteen little spotted kiwi were released on Tiritiri Matangi Island. The majority of these foundation birds went on to breed. Today, over 100 kiwi are believed to thrive on the Island but research in recent decades has indicated that the number of founders is less than ideal for a genetically sound population.

To help rectify this, ten females will shortly be removed from the Island and ten new females from Kapiti Island will be welcomed to the Island. Most of these will be released at a public event on Sunday 30th April.

This operation is being conducted alongside the introduction of little spotted kiwi to Shakespear Regional Park, who will receive our 10 females plus 10 males from Kapiti Island.

As this is a public event, 360 Discovery are putting on one of their larger boats to facilitate the anticipated increase in visitor numbers for this special event. It will, of course, be a wonderful opportunity to see the smallest species of kiwi up close, before they are introduced to their new homes.

Bookings for this event can be made directly with 360 Discovery
