The Great Kiwi Earthworm Survey
The Great Kiwi Earthworm Survey is on! You can take part from your farm, backyard, or anywhere you’ve got permission to dig a small hole. Kids, grab a grown-up and a spade, pick a spot and check on the health of your soil.
Watch the video above, then download the guide and data sheet further down the page to help you fill in the form.

Any earthworm information you provide will be anonymised or aggregated by AgResearch before being shared with AgResearch’s partners or published.
Personal details you provide will not be shared by may be used by AgReserach to contact you for follow-up or to verify the information you provide.
You may also be contacted about outcomes of the Great Kiwi Earthworm Survey.
