A rare white kiwi chick has been born – the first to be hatched in captivity.
The chick, named Manukura, is not an albino but the rare offspring of some North Island brown kiwi from Little Barrier Island.
He was born at the Pukaha Mount Bruce National Wildlife Centre, 24km north of Masterton, on May 1, weighing approximately 250 grams.
