Visit a kiwi creche

Produced by New Zealand Geographic

Visit a kiwi creche—Young kiwis stay in a 12-hectare Atarau Sanctuary creche until they are about a year old—large enough to defend themselves from stoats. Rangers Kristy Owens and Glen Newton check the weight, beak length, body condition and vision. Stoats and rats are controlled in the Paparoa National Park, where some 40 kiwis have been released with high survival rates.
