    Best place to see the kiwi!

    petit parc zoologique mais circuit bien fait avec beaucoup d'explications sur les espèces natives de Nouvelle Zélande, belle volière. Je recommande ce parc surtout pour voir enfin le kiwi dans son milieu (presque naturel)!

    Génial

    Une première, visite du park mais entre nous c'était jute pour les kiwis. Curieux animal que le kiwi, un peu triste de le voir enferme mais les conditions semble très bonne et bénéficié je pense d'un traitement de faveur. J'espère qu ils continueront a amélioré les enclos des autres espèces. Piuuuuu piuuuu kikikiii (cri du kiwi)

    From Otorohanga Kiwi House & Native Bird Park

    How lovely to have you with us. Thank you for helping us to carry out our conservation work. We really appreciate you visiting. The kiwi we hold in captivity are or have all been involved in captive breeding of kiwi for release back into the wild. If you're interested you can see videos and photostories of our breeding programme on our YouTube channel and FaceBook page. Thanks for helping us to conserve these unique species.
