Ōtanewainuku Forest, Western Bay
Where would we be without our native kiwi? Nestled in the heart of Waiariki, the Ōtanewainuku Kiwi Trust, aims to restore the North Island brown kiwi population to the 1200-hectare Ōtanewainuku forest, after pests wreaked havoc on their numbers. This hard-working voluntary conservation group works to support the welfare of our national bird and spread awareness and education.
