This infographic shows:
- 19 out of every 20 kiwi chicks hatched in the wild die before they reach breeding age (their 4th birthday) without predator control
- kiwi are estimated to disappear in the wild in two human generations if the current population decline continues
- 2% is the estimated rate of decline per year for the national kiwi population
- up to 60% of kiwi chicks survive to breeding age (their 4th birthday) in areas that have predator control.
