Kiwis set free into Hunua Ranges

April 6, 2017

Five kiwi have been released into Auckland’s Hunua Ranges – the first time they’ve been there in 50 years.

The Hunua ranges is southeast of Auckland and is about 250 square kilometres large. It is almost completely predator free, making it safe to release kiwi there again.

More than 100 Auckland Council staff, mana whenua, volunteers, locals, friends and family gathered at Wharekawa marae in Kaiaua to help and celebrate.

After the powhiri, guests were able to take photos and pat the native birds before joining a convoy to Kohukohunui in the Hunua Ranges where the kiwi were released while the light was fading.
