Kiwi's released back to the Rimutaka Forest Park

Since the first birds were released in the Rimutaka Forest Park in 2006 and 2009 the population has slowly increased to an estimated 120 birds calling the Southern Rimutakas home.  These chicks are second generation Rimutaka birds, their parents having been born wild in the park.

Eggs were laid at Rimutaka Forest Park and taken to the predator free Kiwi Creche, north of Taupo, gaining weight the 3 Kiwis are returned to the Rimutaka Forest for release.

One of the 3 Kiwis had been given to Kōkiri Marae, Seaview to name. The name given is Te Kahu o Kōkiri Marae - meaning (The cloak of Kōkiri Marae).  

The Kaitiaki for the Kiwi was given to Keriana Kingi.  Keriana and Karen Tutaki were going to accompany the DOC people to release into the bush.  Unfortunately due to bad weather conditions, this was left for DOC to carry out. 

The blessings was held at Wainuiomata Marae on Saturday 28 April 2017.
