NYT : New Zealand Builds a Nest Big Enough to Save Kiwis
i just read an article from The New York Times about New Zealand trying to save kiwis that are in danger of becoming extinct. Kiwi is a small flightless bird that is considered as the national bird. Kiwi's population in about 1820s was as many as five million. Today's population is about 75,000. The Europeans have introduced predators such as ferrets, weasels, stoats, dogs, and cats.
I am praising the program's effort to save kiwis and other endangered animals from becoming extinct.
