Sharing the Kiwi Conservation Story
One of the key strategic goals of TKT since inception is to deliver a kiwi education programme.
In the first instance this is targeted at primary schools in areas populated with kiwi, these predominately exist in the eastern hill country.
The schools programme also supports ongoing work around kiwi awareness at public events, with landowners, in the business community and with service clubs and organisations.
Conservation is high on New Zealand’s agenda and there will be a multitude of jobs in the conservation space for school leavers in future years so it is important that the conservation story is shared with our young people. Our kiwi practitioners are in hot demand to share their insights and experience with kiwi with the wider public.
