If you help us save our Kiwi, we can offer you a unique experience!
The Whakamanu Wildlife Trust is in the fortunate & rare position of being able to offer all sponsors of the Trust a unique opportunity - the chance to see & touch a kiwi chick just before it returns to the wild.
There are three levels of sponsorship:
“Name a Kiwi” gives you naming rights to your very own kiwi chick, plus an invitation to hold your named chick at its release into the wild, and a framed photo of you with your chick. You will receive quarterly progress reports via email for one year, so you can follow the progress of our radio tracked kiwis in Manunui. *If you choose to renew your sponsorship in the following year, you will also be invited to attend a nest interception and/or travel with kiwi eggs to Rainbow Springs in Rotorua, where you will get a complimentary tour of their wonderful ‘Kiwi Encounter’ facility.
Qualifies you to support a previously released kiwi chick, or breeding adult for one year. You will have the opportunity to attend a transmitter & health check in the wild. Receive progress reports for a year, so you can follow your kiwi’s progress. We currently have named, previously released chicks, and adults available for your support. If you would like to support one of these birds then “Support a Kiwi” is for you…
As an “Executive Member” of the Trust you automatically enter a draw to attend a kiwi chick release & receive quarterly progress reports for a year, so you can follow the progress of our radio tracked birds as they make their new life in the wild. Executive Membership is renewable annually.
