@KoiwiGal - A lot of people don't realize that the best way they can help endangered wildlife is to keep control of their pets. Dogs and cats can kill a lot of local animals, or disturb their nests or homes.
You might think you know what your dog does at night, but you probably don't, unless he is locked inside. Dogs will instinctively chase down and kill birds like the kiwi, which are almost defenseless. Cats can be even bigger pests.
People should either keep their animals inside, particularly overnight, or give them bells on their collars, so at least the birds can hear them coming.
