Manukura - the little white kiwi

It's been a pretty exciting couple of days. Three weeks ago at the Pukaha Mount Bruce wildlife centre, the thirteenth kiwi chick of the season was hatched, and he's a little bit special. He's a North Island Brown Kiwi who just so happens to be white. His name is Manukura and he's not an Albino, he's just got pretty cool genes.
