Headline: Fiordland Kiwi Diaries: Resolution Island Trapping

We caught up with Tim, a ranger on the front lines of the Save Our Iconic Kiwi initiative. This is the fourteenth in a series following the work he’s doing to save the Fiordland tokoeka (kiwi). Tim and his team have been studying the population of kiwi at Shy Lake to find out how to best protect them from predators like stoats. They have captured a number of kiwi and put transmitters on them, and are now monitoring them through the breeding season to find out how well the adults and chicks survive without pest control.
