Zespri - Kiwifruit helping kiwi!
Zespri is donating $50,000 a year for the next three years to assist the Trust’s work.
“It’s fantastic to be able to support these sterling locals who’ve been quietly working to save kiwi for decades now,” says Zespri Chief Grower and Alliances Officer Dave Courtney. The $150,000 three-year commitment will fund transmitting gear for tracking Kiwis, pay for helicopters on egg recovery ops in inaccessible parts of the forest and cover the cost of egg hatching at Rainbow Springs.
The kiwifruit marketing company’s involvement won’t stop at writing cheques.
“We’re very keen to find practical ways to help the trust,” says Zespri’s Dave Courtney. “We’re developing several projects that will mean real, hands-on involvement of Zespri people.”
