Kiwi bird is not only a cute, small bird, with a thick beak and a small head in comparison with her body. Kiwi bird is also the symbol of New Zealand and is endangered. This bird’s origin is New Zealand and if you visit this country, go to a zoo and you will have the chance to see how this bird looks like. One interesting thing about Kiwi bird is the fact that she lies eggs that are half of her body, so it is an amazing phenomenon. Kiwi bird does not fly and she is a nocturnal animal, so that it is the moment in a day when she looks for her pray.
Kiwi bird also represents New Zealand’s image for tourism, so it is very important for that country. Its life span is about 20-30 years, or even longer, depending on the habitat in which it lives. Humans are the main responsible for the fact that the Kiwi bird is endangered and there is an increased possibility to extinct. New Zealand’s government has its own special policies for protecting this beautiful and cute bird, but this is not enough, as long as people illegally hunt it or destroy its habitat. By deforesting and building many houses or factories, humans destroy its natural habitat, its protection and prey, so it is impossible for a Kiwi bird to live under these circumstances and in a place like that.
It would be better if humans would think more about this cute and little bird that has managed to survive for so many years, but today it has no second chance if we will not help it and will not fight for its life. In case you did not know, this bird is also very interesting, as it has a strong smell sense, can feel its prey from a longer distance and very easily. If you travel to New Zealand or in other countries where his bird lives, go to the zoo to have the possibility to watch it live.
