Covering 13,000ha in Eastern Taranaki is a sanctuary for an estimated 3,500-4,000 western brown kiwi who are free to breed with the predators continuously being destroyed. As a community driven project, the Purangi Kiwi Project relies on fundraising and donations to stay on top of the pest control. Their hope is to allow the wider community to be a part of the kiwi story, engage people in the kiwi’s struggle and allow them to get up close and personal with the kiwi.
