The Kid Should See This

A Kiwi chick struggles to hatch at Auckland Zoo

Watch this Kiwi chick hatch from an egg at Auckland Zoo. This is the season’s second hatchling for BNZ Operation Nest Egg, a program that collects the eggs of endangered and critically endangered wild kiwi. Hatched and protected until they are big enough to return to their native populations, this process has increased their chance of surviving to adulthood to 65%, up from just 5% in the wild.
