Kiwi Chick Sponsorship Packages


The Rowi and Haast Tokoeka are the two most endangered kiwi in the world, with only around 370 of each bird remaining.   Rowi are restricted to the Okarito Forest, north of Franz Josef Glacier, and the Haast Tokoeka are restricted to a small area of forest near Haast, South Westland.

With the support of BNZ Save the Kiwi Trust, the Department of Conservation uses BNZ Operation Nest EggTM to save endangered kiwi from extinction.  BNZ Operation Nest Egg involves removing eggs from the risk of predation, hatching them in captivity, and placing the chicks in a predator-free environment until they are big enough to fend for themselves.  They are then returned to the wild.

In the wild, only 5% of kiwi that hatch will survive to adulthood due to predation by stoats.  If we can help to get a kiwi chick over 1kg in weight through BNZ Operation Nest Egg, that chick's survival rating will dramatically increase to 85%.

Sponsoring a kiwi chick will help to save the Rowi and Haast Tokoeka from extinction. Your donation will help to fund kiwi husbandry costs including: kiwi food, brooder equipment, incubation equipment and health and hygiene products. The duration of your sponsorship will be for one year.  If you would like to help save New Zealand's rarest kiwi please consider one of the following packages and follow this link to download a Kiwi Chick Sponsorship Form.
