About Otanewainuku Kiwi Trust

The Otanewainuku Kiwi Trust is a community based conservation Trust formed in 2002 by Te Puke Forest and Bird and other members of the community concerned at the decline of North Island brown kiwi in the Otanewainuku forest. Trust volunteers work to protect kiwi and other fauna and flora of the forest. Activities range from the more physically demanding, such as maintaining a trap line through the bush and coming to workdays, to quieter pursuits such as guiding, fundraising, kiwi listening, helping with mail outs, sausage sizzles or simply sponsoring us.
