Jarden Raises Over $330,000 on ‘Save the Kiwi Day’

On 15 October Jarden celebrated ‘Save the Kiwi Day,’ an initiative to support community partner Kiwis for kiwi in its mission to take our national icon from endangered to everywhere. Contributions from the firm, clients and staff raised over $330,000 for Kiwis for kiwi, which will have a real impact on the survival rates of our national icon.

Despite national wildlife protection efforts our kiwi number drops by 2% every year and 95% of kiwis born in unprotected areas die before they reach breeding age. 

With the funds raised from across the Jarden business, Kiwis for kiwi will be able to find more wild kiwi and attach transmitters to their legs to track and monitor them. This enables them to uplift their eggs and take them to an incubation facility, safely hatch them, and then release the chicks into a predator-free environment. This approach is the fastest way to build our kiwi population and protect the birds we already have.  

Jarden CEO James Lee says Jarden is thrilled to be able to support the growth of our kiwi population, through its contributions and ongoing support.

“Jarden is extremely proud to support our community partner Kiwis for kiwi, and to be doing our part to ensure the survival of our national icon - something all New Zealanders treasure.”
