Pukaha Kiwi & Kaka Numbers

Bridget Percy made this Official Information request to Department of Conservation

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Bridget Percy to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Bridget Percy

Dear Department of Conservation,

1. How many monitored & unmonitored kiwi (of the 154 that have been bred at, or brought into, Pukaha Mt Bruce since 2005) are there currently:

a). Known to be living in the Pukaha Forest?
b). Currently living in enclosures at Pukaha Mt Bruce?

2. In Hayden Barrett's response (dated 23 June 2020) to my last OIA he indicated that known breeding pairs 'were left to naturally incubate and raise their chicks last season' and that their 'nests were monitored with cameras'.

a) How many of these breeding pairs were there and how many chicks did they raise last breeding season?

b). When so much emphasis is placed on only releasing kiwi hatched in captivity once they reach a target weight at which they can 'fight off predators', why are kiwi eggs and chicks being left in the Pukaha Forest when the extremely high rate of kiwi deaths there indicates that this is not best practice?

3. How many kaka do staff currently estimate there are living in the Pukaha Forest and how many of these are coming to the 3pm feeding station each day?

4. Why are kaka being bred in the aviary at Pukaha when staff last estimated that there were 150 living in the forest?

Yours faithfully,

Bridget Percy
