The Environment, Conservation and Outdoor Education Trust (ECOED) was established in 2002 to halt the decline of North Island brown kiwi in the Kaweka Forest Park. At that time, the estimated kiwi population was about 200. In response to the crisis, ECOED initiated the Save the Kiwi Hawke’s Bay Project, which is now known as Save Our Kaweka Kiwi, or SOKK.
Our goal is to restore a healthy population of kiwi in the forest park.
From marketing and fundraising to trapping and kiwi monitoring, we'll be able to find a way for you to help.
