QEC has sponsored an endangered Rowi Kiwi egg. This share allows us to follow the first year of a critically endangered Rowi Kiwi chick's life as it goes through the BNZ Operation Nest Egg programme throughout 2014.

In a small area of forest near Okarito, rowi are fighting for survival. Through predation and habitat loss, these remarkable birds have been reduced to just one natural population, in Okarito Kiwi Zone, South Westland. Down to around 270 birds, we now have close to 400 and the number is growing every year.

Thanks to lots of hard work and some ground-breaking technology, a dedicated Department of Conservation (DOC) team is bringing this national taonga (treasure) back from the brink of extinction.
