Last Friday I was lucky enough to head out to Kapiti Island with the Kiwis for Kiwi crew to learn some more about kiwi conservations and see the DOC workers in action. Kapiti is the largest accessible island bird sanctuaries and home to over 1200 little spotted kiwi (and countless other native birds). It was a really insightful trip to such a fantastic place.
