Mazda has announced a partnership with Kiwis for kiwi, a national conservation charity.
Kiwis for kiwi will launch a unique initiative as part of its ongoing work to save New Zealand’s national icon and flightless bird from extinction.
The Mazda Foundation has provided the charity with two Mazda CX-5 vehicles as well as funding for the project.
Kiwis for kiwi executive director, Michelle Impey, said the support of the Mazda Foundation has provided the opportunity to launch a transformational new initiative that will contribute to the task of turning around the decline in kiwi populations.
“We are thrilled to have the Mazda Foundation’s support which will see us working together on an exciting new project which we look forward to announcing next year. They’ve very generously given us two new ‘kiwimobiles’ to help us transport our people and kiwi, safely and in style.”
David Hodge, chairman of the Mazda Foundation, said getting behind such a great initiative was an easy decision for the Foundation.
“The Kiwi is such an important part of our national identity and if our support can help in some way to ensure its survival then that is a great outcome for everyone.”
