We Say/You Say: Kiwi Sanctuary

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Northern News

Hi neighbours,

Would you support a predator-free, fenced area in an area near you?

Five kiwi have been found dead in Northland and a dog is believed to be responsible.

The Department of Conservation is urging dog owners to keep control of their pets especially during the daytime where kiwi are at their most vulnerable.

From 1990 to 2018, 345 kiwi were killed by dogs in the North Island, according to DOC. With heightened conservation efforts, the Northland kiwi population is showing positive signs of recovery.

Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the Northern News.

The Ministry of Social Development has recently updated the Guide for Carers, a valuable resource for those who care for family, whānau, āiga or friends with a health condition, a disability, an injury, or a physical or mental illness.

It covers a range of topics such as financial help, assessing needs, getting help at home and being able to take a break from caring.

The Guide for Carers is available online now: bit.ly...
