We are a community conservation initiative dedicated to running effective conservation projects in the Paparoa Ranges near Greymouth. Our goal is to halt the decline of our wonderfully iconic but highly threatened native species.
The Paparoa Wildlife Trust (PWT) consists of a small and dedicated team of committed individuals working collaboratively with DOC to establish and maintain effective conservation projects in the South Paparoa Range, north of Greymouth on the West Coast of the South Island.
To date our main focus has been on management, research and advocacy for great spotted kiwi (roroa) in the south Paparoa Ranges. So far the P.W.T has successfully raised and released 30 Great spotted kiwi . By planting this area in native plants it will replicate an environment that will be comparable to the wild environment in which the kiwi will be released. Through the support of Trees that Count we have been able to do this!
