Kapiti Island is known as one of the most important conservation islands in New Zealand, providing a pest and predator-free environment for many of the country’s most endangered bird species.
However, Kapiti Island is not just a ‘conservation island’. For over eight hundred years, people have also lived on the island, and their history remains through the stories and legends passed down by their ancestors, as well as through historical sites and artifacts.
Whether you’re a local or visiting from overseas, seeing Kiwi birds in their natural habitat is an experience that should not be missed. Kapiti Island is home to over 1,200 Little Spotted Kiwi birds, making it the most prolific population of LS Kiwi to be found and one of the most reliable opportunities to see them in the wild.
