Follow Maia's 2 million step journey and help the Taranaki Kiwi Trust take "kiwi from rare to everywhere"


Follow the Taranaki Kiwi Trust's new apprentice Kiwi Habitat Protection Ranger, Māia Gibbs, as she aims to walk 2 million steps while checking traps over the next year. This is Māia's first conservation job and she is up for the challenge for getting fit while she works. Follow Maia's progress and her awesome work stories that will be posted on the Trust's website regularly.

The Taranaki Kiwi Trust works to protect kiwi on both private and public conservation land through predator control and is involved in kiwi monitoring and research across the region. TKT want to take kiwi from rare to everywhere and they need your help. This October marks the Trust's 20th anniversary and we have a goal to raise at least $20k by the end of the year.
