Abstract: Kiwi are a nocturnal endemic bird with 11 species/subspecies throughout New Zealand living in habitats from alpine South Island, coastal Stewart Island and forest and scrublands of the North Island. Once widespread and existing in large numbers, in 1996 it was calculated that North Island kiwi had probably declined in abundance by at least 90% in the previous 100 years (McLennan, et al., 1996). Now, 20 years later they are classified as nationally vulnerable.
