DescriptionIn 1912, 7x Kiwi Pukupuku's were introduced onto Kapiti Island. They are the 'ancestors' of all the Little Spotted Kiwi now in the country. As after 1912 the rest of the Little Spotted Kiwis declined to zero due to dogs, rats and other predators.
The Kiwi won the New Zealand Bird of the Year in 2009.However this win was for the 'Kiwi Tribe' not just the Kiwi Pukupuku. Voting is in apx October/November every year and is always an exciting and heavily competed contest.
The Kiwi Pukupuku sparkly decoration was introduced in 2018.
This decoration is made of fabric, sequins, beads and coloured metallic threads. It is nice and light for posting. If you need to send them internationally we can do it for you. Handy information - The cost to send up to 10x NZ Bird sparkly decorations to the same international address is the same as sending 1x.
