Pukaha Kiwi Numbers 2021

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,

Thank you for your response on 26 October, 2021.

Please answer the following questions:

1. In 2018 a Pukaha kiwi census indicated that there were 18 kiwi living in the Pukaha Forest and the acoustic recordings done in 2020 indicated that there were 12 live kiwi in the Pukaha Forest following the loss of 6 kiwi during lockdown earlier that year.

Please answer my question 'How many unmonitored kiwi (of the 154 that have been bred at, or brought into Pukaha Mt Bruce since 2005) are known to be living in the Pukaha Forest?' (as the 114 kiwi calls mentioned in the OIA response dated 26 October 2021 gives no indication of how many different kiwi made these calls).

2. How many kiwi under 1 year of age are there estimated to be currently in the Pukaha Forest which are too young to call?

3. In question 2 of the OIA response dated 26 October 2021 Jack Mace stated that 'incursions are very rare' and that they 'are detected quickly with cameras'. As the Pukaha Forest is 942 ha in size and the boundary is not fenced nor under constant camera surveilance where are the cameras positioned that pick up these 'incursions' and how many of them are there?.

Yours faithfully,

Bridget Percy
