Photo supplied THREE kiwi chicks hatched at Auck- land Zoo have been released on a Hauraki Gulf island and more are due there next month. Introduction of the chicks at Rotoroa Island marks the start of a new pro- gramme between the Rotoroa Island Trust (RIT), the zoo and Thames Coast Kiwi Care (TCKC). It’s designed to help boost the popula- tion of Coromandel North Island brown kiwi, the rarest of the four distinct types of brown kiwi. The three chicks released at Rotoroa Island were hatched at the zoo from eggs collected from Te Mata, on the Thames coast, Coromandel. Up to 20 chicks may be released onto the island each year. On reaching 1.2kg, large enough to have a chance against predators on the mainland, the birds will be returned to the 2500-hectare protected area on the Thames coast cared for by TCKC. It’s possible that fewer than 50 Coro- mandel brown kiwi remain in the pro- tected area. The total population of 1500 is believed to be at severe risk in areas of Coromandel where there is no predator control. The programme is also providing a number of chicks for release onto Motutapu Island. The kiwis’ arrival follows the first translocations of 80 saddleback and whitehead birds to Rotoroa in May as part of a 25-year plan by RIT and the zoo. A decoy gannet colony installed last May has so far attracted six gannets and specially trained rodent dogs will visit this week as part of ongoing bio-security maintenance. Early next year, two endemic skink species will be introduced to the island. The plan includes introducing up to 20 new species by 2018. Members of the public are invited to see more kiwi chicks released onto Rotoroa Island on November 15 (rain date November 16). More information is online at www.aucklandzoo.co.nz and www.rotoroa.org. Presently, 27 kiwi on average are killed by predators every week. The Kiwis for Kiwi organisation says if noth- ing is done, today’s generation of chil- dren could be the last to see kiwi in the wild. More information is online at www. kiwsforkiwi.org.
