Save Kiwi Month
October is Save Kiwi month and the inaugural national fundraising initiative, the Great Kiwi Morning Tea, was held on Friday 16 October 2015.
The charity Kiwis for Kiwi invited us to get family, friends, colleagues or neighbours together and hold a classic Kiwi morning tea. Guests were asked to make a donation towards saving our national treasure - just $100 is enough to save one kiwi by controlling predators across its habitat for an entire year. Unmanaged kiwi populations are estimated to be declining at a rate of 2% per annum. Without management, we lose around 27 kiwis each week.
