Coastal kiwi are on the move in eastern Northland thanks to Kiwi Coast, a unique project that includes 80 QEII covenants in its start up area.
Initially the Kiwi Coast project is concentrating on predator control to allow safe passage along natural corridors between kiwi strongholds at Whangarei Heads and the Tutukaka Coast.
Kiwi Coast is part of the Reconnecting Northland programme which is backing community-led ecological restoration across the north. The programme is delivered by the New Zealand Landcare Trust and WWF-New Zealand.
The larger Reconnecting Northland project is backed by the Tindall Foundation and the ASB Community Trust.
