About this event

This May we are hosting a Kiwi Call Survey Training day at Sanctuary Mountain!

The purpose of this event is to train volunteers to measure the Kiwi population density and participate in amazing conservation projects in the Waikato!

Our aim is to educate the community in the skill of kiwi call count survey whilst engaging with them on potential of becoming long term kaitiaki kiwi.

To build and create a team that is passionate about the maunga, conservation and kiwi that will support the annual kiwi call counts from year to year.

The training day will be from 12pm - 8pm on Saturday May 8th. During the day you will learn a mixture of orienteering, Kiwi call identification and preparing results to be analyzed afterwards.

Those who participate in the Kiwi call survey training day, will also be given the opportunity to work during our 5 day Kiwi survey later in the season. Interested parties from the training day will be able to participate in the kiwi survey which is taking place from potentially late May/early June. We will notify participants of exact dates at the training day.

It will be an absolutely amazing event and it is the perfect opportunity for members of the community to get upskilled in conservation and becoming future Kaitiaki.
