Kiwi are in the 'boxing ring' every day in NZ. Our national bird is under siege from introduced predators. Ninety-five percent of Kiwi in the wild are killed before they reach breeding age.
I'm putting my body on the line in a boxing match to raise funds for Kiwis for Kiwi, a national charity working to save the Kiwi from extenction by supporting Kiwi conservation groups. I'm on a strict 12 week training regime to get boxing fit and it's something well outside my comfort zone.
I'm aiming to raise at least $1500 which is enough to protect 15 Kiwi from pests and predators for a year.
So this is where I need your support. Please give generously - you'll be giving me the motivation to get through training and hopefully win my match. Best of all your generosity will help to make sure Kiwi are around for future generations.
Thanks in advance for your kind and generous donations.
