It was difficult to understand why a legal executive would give up her precious holiday time to be part of the annual volunteer programme that the Department of Conservation organises.
Totally intrigued, I decided the only way to found out more about the project was to join one of the projects.
We went for a walk and discovered plenty of kiwi prints on the sand dunes and down on Big Hell Fire Beach, where the view is straight out to Codfish Island, the kakapo sanctuary.
On our last night at the hut we managed to spot a Kiwi as it went about its nocturnal business.
That was the highlight of my week.
