Meet Our Supporters

Mercury 270x150

Mercury supports the Hatchery by providing solar panels and backup battery power for our incubators. This is crucial in providing the incubators with secure electricity in case of a power outage, ensuring we can keep the incubators going and the kiwi eggs warm. Mercury also sponsors the Kiwi Intensive Care Unit. Mercury gifted the ICU building and helped us establish this on-site. 

Thank you so much Mercury for all of your wonderful help and for helping us save Kiwi!
