Pauanesia and Kiwis for Kiwi

The kiwi is synonymous with our national identity. A rare and unique bird, kiwi are still facing a precarious future in Aotearoa. Predators such as dogs, rats, and stoats threaten the naturally flightless birds’ habitat, eggs, and young. Threat of extinction is real, and here at Pauanesia that is a future we do not want to see!

That is why we are supporting the independent charity Kiwis for Kiwi. Officially launched in 2012, Kiwis for Kiwi provides funding and support for conservation organisations and community groups dedicated to increasing kiwi numbers, protecting kiwi populations from predators, and restoring the kiwi’s natural habitat.

The newest addition to our kiwi bird crew are our Surfer Dudes and Bikini Chicks, complete with one-of-a-kind hand stitched bikinis by Auckland artist Rosie Coker. $10 from every sale goes to the Kiwis for Kiwi charity, so they can continue their amazing work.

Kiwis for Kiwi are on a mission: they want kiwis to survive and thrive. We at Pauanesia are equally passionate about ensuring kiwi flourish forever, and we are proud to be supporting Kiwis for Kiwi with their aim. Like Kiwis for Kiwi, we can’t imagine an Aotearoa without this beautiful bird. If you would like to purchase one of our kiwis and, by doing so, help Kiwis for Kiwi, pop into our High Street store or onto our website. But you’ll have to be quick – these snazzy birds are quickly surfing out the door!
