Some of the traps being bundled for the airlift.

Our 2015 Grant Recipient Survey has been completed by 95% of the organisations who received funding from Nikau Foundation in 2015. Here is one story which came back from the Rimutaka Forest Park Charitable Trust.

“Kiwi are synonymous with the very core of what make us New Zealanders. Kiwi have resilience second to none, when we restore their habitat, their home, and control their predators, kiwi can and will flourish in the wilds of Wellington.
As an organisation we have proven what can be achieved through determination, commitment and taking the long view; working with many many people giving of their time to support the kiwi.”
