One of the rarest birds of all is New Zealand's Kakapo, which is a flightless bird. The species has been largely wiped out by introduced predatory mammals such as feral cats, stoats, and possum; being hunted as game and for its feathers; and they reproduce only every 3-5 years. For over 100 years New Zealand has made efforts to protect the species. In 1989 it instituted a new recovery program, and now can be seen a slow but steady increase in numbers.

Animales raros y en peligro de extinción: El Kiwi

El kiwi es un triste ave sin alas. Y para compensar la impotencia de la falta del vuelo, el Kiwi es un animal violento y temperamental. Te puede arrancar el ojo a picotazos con ese chiliyo de pico chistoso que tiene. Una cosa graciosa, es que los kiwis ponen huevos enormes en comparación de su tamaño, y los papás los incuban, mientras las hembras buscan alimentos. Viva el matriarcado La UICN tiene clasificados al kiwi común, al moteado mayor y al moteado menor como vulnerables, y al marrón…
