Donate $1350 to build a brooder box!

Brooder boxes are made from hard wearing ply and timber and are lined with a medical grade gel coating to allow for sanitization between each kiwi chick.

The National Kiwi Hatchery partners with Yates NZ who supply sphagnum moss for the floor of the brooders to mimic the forest floor and for kiwi chicks to fossick around in.

The brooder boxes also have a specially designed heating system to keep the air inside at a stable temperature similar to that of a New Zealand forest during summer.

Sponsor a brooder box and give a kiwi chick a safe home!
