This event is part of Conservation Week 2018 -

The Butter Factory is hosting the Premiere Screening of "Kiwi Monitoring" a Backyard Kiwi video story.

"Kiwi Monitoring"introduces us to Darwin a monitored kiwi who lives in a busy noisy quarry at Parua Bay.

Darwin is filmed having his annual health check and Backyard Kiwi’s Todd Hamilton gives us the low down on Darwin’s physiology, general health and well being. Enjoy rare footage and the unique story of Darwin and his mate Mrs D who have successfully hatched 2-3 chicks each year since Darwin settled in the quarry in 2012 (you do the math!).

Backyard Kiwi is stoked to share this premiere with 'Parihaka Landcare' an urban pest control project and Pukenui Western Hills Forest Trust an ambitious initiative in the Western Hills close to city boundaries.

Each group will give a short talk about their project and there will be opportunities to ask questions during the talks or speak to individual groups after the videos. Then we’ll show more Backyard Kiwi video stories on the BIG screen at the Butter factory – these are short and sweet – no longer than 15 minutes each.

Backyard Kiwi caps, kiwi prints and signed picture books will be on sale and there will be a few spot prizes announced throughout the evening. Enjoy excellent victuals and beverages on tap at the Butter Factory counter.

You can follow Darwin’s full history in Local Kiwi Profiles along with all our other local monitored kiwi.
You can watch more videos on the Backyard Kiwi YouTube Channel.
