Product Overview

Back in 1990, when Neville Peat wrote The Incredible Kiwi, New Zealand's national bird was in retreat from habitat loss and the severe impact of predation. The kiwi was not well understood, being nocturnal and hidden in the forest. During the 1990s, saving the kiwi became a popular cause. Community kiwi conservation projects have emerged all over the country. And scientific research has led to greater knowledge of the bird's population dynamics and distribution. The kiwi has truly become 'the people's bird.' This book describes the kiwi from every point of view, from wild bird to national emblem. What is this biological oddity called the kiwi? Exactly how many species of kiwi are there? Where do they live? What do they eat? How are people helping them to survive? Why does this flightless, semi-nocturnal bird have such a major place in the Kiwi nation's life? This new book by Neville Peat tells the story of the largest popular movement in support of an endangered native species that New Zealand has ever seen.
