Today I went to a moving ceremony down by the Lake as two Great Spotted Kiwi were welcomed before their release into the National Park. The re introduction of kIwi here is part of the Rotoiti Recovery Project. This project has involved an extensive predator trapping programme, involving large numbers of dedicated volunteers as well as DoC staff. I feel privileged to live right on the edge of the National Park, where the kiwi can sometimes be heard calling at night, thanks to the commitment of these hardworking teams. Welcome to our new neighbours!
