“The kiwi is unique to New Zealand and is one of the most unusual birds on earth. It is flightless, nocturnal, has hair-like feathers and burrows into the ground to lay an egg representing 25% of its body weight.
The kiwi is shy, secretive and its covert habits have frustrated scientists for many years. New information on kiwi behaviour challenges past understanding of the bird. The kiwi's characteristics have helped it to survive; now its numbers are falling and the programme explores the reasons why and offers hope for the future.”, 29/10/2007
