WHO WE ARE
The Ōtanewainuku 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 Ōtanewainuku Forest.
Much of the work of the Trust is based on volunteers – from the trustees through to the pest management teams, kiwi team, kōkako team, education, communication, fundraising, finances, database management and administration.
Volunteering Bay of Plenty, with funding from Western Bay of Plenty District Council, coordinates our volunteers. Many thanks to our many hundreds of volunteers who have helped out over the years. Together we make a difference!
