Kiwi

The most iconic and treasured of our many bird species and another who decided to shun the traditional "fly like a bird" approach.  Thse ground based beauties find NZ as their only home and we are working hard to help them thrive.  Amongst their claims to fame the kiwi lays the largest egg of any bird in the World (relative to its body size), has nostrils at the end of its beak, it has no tail, is almost blind and so well recognised that we have named ourselves after it.
