We Say/You Say: Kiwi Sanctuary

Thomas Campbell Reporter from The Bay Chronicle

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 Bay Chronicle.
