TAKE A BEHIND THE SCENES TOUR OF A KIWI HATCHERY AND GET UP CLOSE WITH NZ'S ADORABLE NATIONAL BIRD
Rotorua, New Zealand
An incubation education.
Set amongst the gorgeous forests and springs of the Maori spiritual home of Rotorua, you'll learn all about a national icon and the remarkable efforts undertaken to save New Zealand's national bird. The adorable, flightless kiwi remains critically endangered, but this hatchery - recently visited by Prince Harry and his wife Meghan - incubates and hatches eggs and inspires hope for the future. On this interactive behind the scenes tour you'll have the opportunity to stand in a human-sized kiwi burrow and meet the birds themselves in a nocturnal enclosure. Sure, it's inspirational, but it's also a serious cuteness overload.
