Help Rotokare Scenic Reserve Trust, help kiwi, help hihi.
We can ride-out a crisis, and make sacrifices with a longer-term view, but our vulnerable native wildlife cannot wait.Taranaki
Our country is facing a challenge and the impacts of Covid-19 will be with us for some time. As the economic impacts become clearer it will certainly cause major risk to many charities. Our greatest challenge will be financially maintaining and sustaining our programmes over the mid to longer term.
We can ride-out a crisis, and make sacrifices with a longer-term view, but our vulnerable native wildlife cannot wait.
While Rotokare Scenic Reserve Trust is doing everything it can to ensure the survival of vulnerable native species, including hihi, tieke, pāteke, North Island brown kiwi, we need your help to make our efforts go even further. The ability to continue our work for the community and our precious wildlife always relies on generous support from the community, now more so than ever.
You can help ensure that these species will still be here in New Zealand in the future. Your support is crucial to our efforts to ensure ecological restoration and survival.
We are a community-led, award winning, conservation-based charitable trust in Taranaki. As kaitiake our mission is to achieve the highest level of restoration, protection, and enhancement of Rotokare's indigenous ecosystem.

We are thrilled with the recent milestone success of our kiwi project.
Since 1 June Rotokare Scenic Reserve Trust and our partners Taranaki Kiwi Trust have translocated 25 kiwi from the Rotokare ecosancturay to other predator- trapped locations. One in eastern Taranaki and the other at Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari.
These kiwi have grown up at the Rotokare Sanctuary, which has an estimated population of over 180 kiwi. They will now supplement existing kiwi populations and add new genetics.
Kiwi were first brought to Rotokare ecosanctuary in 2010. The idea was to grow a genetically diverse kiwi population in an environment free from introduced predators. The aim of the project has always been to provide kiwi for other areas, thus assisting ecological restoration efforts of other groups.
Growing the kiwi population at Rotokare Scenic Reserve requires constant vigilance on the part of volunteers and staff. The ecosantuary itself must be maintained - especially the predator-proof fence and surrounding land. (The Halo protection across 1000's ha outside the fence).
Your donation to Rotokare Scenic Reserve Trust helps to keep the ecosanctuary running and protects the vulnerable wild species here.
Thank you for your support, so that future generations can experience these species for themselves.
