There's a lot of hard work and love that goes into saving kiwi and in an egg-citing milestone, the National Kiwi Hatchery Aotearoa has just celebrated the arrival of their 2,000th chick!
The hatching was live-streamed to the world so people from across the globe could tune in to follow the egg in its journey to become the newest kiwi celebrity.
The National Kiwi Hatchery has been hatching kiwi since 1995 when it received its first egg as part of the Operation Nest Egg programme. Now, the team hatches over 130 kiwi a year!
