Watch: New Zealand authorities are working to protect kiwis

Date:

The relevant authorities estimate that there are only about 70,000 wild kiwis left in New Zealand.

New Zealand’s kiwis, which cannot fly, are roaming around the green hills of Wellington for the first time in a century, after a campaign to eradicate predators from areas around the capital.

The number of local flightless birds, such as the kakapo and the kiwi, decreased in the country, due to urban expansion on the one hand, and due to the increase in the number of animals that prey on them, on the other hand.

The relevant authorities estimate that there are only about 70,000 wild kiwis left in New Zealand.

Although the bird is a beloved national symbol, few New Zealanders have ever seen it in the wild.

However, the numbers are rising again thanks to more than 90 community initiatives working nationwide to protect them.
