3 News' story about Tamakitera, the BNZ Save the Kiwi Trust Operation Nest Egg kiwi chick that we released to Motuora Island on Friday. Love the kiwi ingenuity our zookeepers used to help Tamakitera to hatch!
Female North Island brown kiwi chick hatched on January 12 at the Toledo Zoo. This is a first for the Zoo's Avian Breeding Center (ABC), an off-exhibit facility dedicated to breeding rare and endangered birds. Zoo staff is hand-rearing the chick, which as a precocial species was relatively mature and mobile soon after hatching. PHOTO COURTESY OF TOLEDO ZOO
