An endangered rowi kiwi or okarito kiwi (Apteryx rowi) at the West Coast Wildlife Centre in Franz Josef Glacier, New Zealand. This is the rarest of all the kiwi species with fewer than 400 animals remaining. This center is the place where they incubate eggs that are brought in from nests in the wild, increasing the chance of chick survival from 5 percent in the wild to 75 percent if the chick is raised in captivity and then released.
