The Ruahine Kiwi Project is managed by Environment Network Manawatū (ENM) via a collaboration between Manawatū River Source to Sea (S2S) and Te Kaūru Eastern Manawatū River Hapū Collective (Te Kāuru).  The project is funded by the Department of Conservation (DoC) Jobs for Nature initiative and aims to control predator pests in 13,000 ha of the Southern Ruahine Ranges, with the dream of returning Kiwi to the area by 2026. The project is delivered in alignment with neighbouring predator control projects in the area, presenting a fantastic opportunity to return a taonga species to a significant proportion of the Ruahine Ranges.
