A woman searching for rowi kiwi nests in a forest on Lake Mapourika near Franz Josef Glacier, New Zealand. The rowi kiwi is the rarest of all the kiwi species with fewer than 400 animals remaining. Once found, eggs 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.
