  1. Hi Zaeeda,

    I love the picture that you have included today in your blog about the brown kiwi bird. I have only ever seen one kiwi bird in 'real life' and it was at the Auckland zoo. I often wonder what it would be like to see a real kiwi bird in the wild. Given that they are nocturnal animals who only come out at night time, it is unlikely that we will see a kiwi anytime soon.

    As you write in your blog post, it is also unlikely that we will see a kiwi bird because they are rapidly decreasing in number. It is very concerning as there may come a time when all of the kiwi birds have been killed by predators (or by other causes such as illness or starvation) and we will be without the beautiful brown kiwi. I hope that we are able to come together and find a way to protect this special, native animal...

    Do you have any ideas for things that we could do to protect kiwi birds? If so, I'd love to hear them!
