Endangered kiwis die in New Zealand zoo

1 post in this topic

Eight endangered kiwi birds have died from respiratory infections while being treated at New Zealand's Wellington Zoo, in what authorities said on Tuesday was a "tragedy" for conservation efforts.

The rowi sub-species is regarded as critically endangered, with only 400 left, although the population has increased from a low of 150 in the mid-1990s thanks to an intensive conservation programme.
