Kiwi Conservation Centre

One of Te Puia’s greatest drawcards is its new Kiwi Conservation Centre that gets you up-close-and-personal with one of our national treasures like never before.

If you’re a Kiwi who’s never seen a Kiwi, Te Puia provides the perfect opportunity to make it happen. Now you can get a really close look at these endangered birds in a special darkened enclosure and learn how the sanctuary is working to protect them.

Kiwi Encounters

See the kiwi live, close up and active in their nocturnal enclosure. Watch them play, discover their fascinating history, and learn more about our conservation activities to protect them.

Brand New Facility

Featuring temperature controlled lighting for the kiwi and growing vegetation, isolation room for sick or injured kiwi, soundproof panels and a speaker system with educational information.

Sustainability

Te Puia is part of a national programme to protect and breed native kiwi birds. We are bound by promises to our (tūpuna) ancestors to preserve our unique geothermal environment, language and culture.
