Phillip has been operating their company on Stewart Island for the last 20 years under a concession permit from the Department of Conservation. At the moment this concession allows him to take 15 people each evening to the specified area on his permit. Over the period of this time Phillip has been proactive in the welfare of the Kiwi in its natural home of the area by trapping feral cats, possums and rats. He is now also taking an active role in the maintenance of the tracks in the area. Each year he submits an annual report to the Department of Conservation about numbers of nightly Kiwi sightings, weather conditions, and the number of people he takes on his trips. Because of the low (if any) impact on the welfare of the Kiwi, the department has allowed him to continue with this unique experience which is now world renowned.
