Kiwi conservation told through stories of 3 birds

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:20 pm on 18 November 2019

They're our national bird but they aren't faring too well out in the wild. Kiwi are numbers are in rapid decline and require the help of teams across New Zealand to survive. 

Author Janet Hunt decided the best way to showcase this conservation work was to write about three specific birds - Latitude, Raratoka and Piwi - and their stories in a new book, Three Kiwi Tales. She tells us about their rescue and recovery journey.
