Six kiwi released at Kaitake range in conservation milestone

From Checkpoint, 6:17 pm on 9 April 2021

Six kiwi have been released onto the Kaitake range in Te Papakura o Taranaki / Egmont National Park today where the call of our national bird has been absent for decades.

The release is a milestone in a battle against predators on Kaitake being waged - for the most part - by a small army of volunteers.

Our Taranaki Whanganui Robin Martin has more.
