KAPOWAI KIWI GROUP INC. NEEDS NEW COMMITTEE MEMBERS
One of your local Kiwi Conservation groups started in 2002. We do predator control work over 3000h including two "Significant Natural Areas": the Parakau and the Kapowai. We work with private landowners and conservation groups to protect Kiwi, Hochstetter Frogs, Fern Birds and all native flora and fauna. Every winter. volunteers do a Kiwi Call Count Listening Survey. In order to maintain our Inc. Society status/funding, we need new committee members and a chairperson. The work we do is invaluable and does not require a big time commitment. If you have any inquiries or interest, please ring Jenny 866 3919 or Murray 866 3873.
