Kiwi Bird Phoenix doing well

26 January 2016

We at Puma Darts/Shot! are very proud to have another opportunity to sponsor a kiwi bird, and we have proudly named him  "Phoenix" after our 2015 Taiwanese distributor.  Phoenix was hatched in December 2015 and at the Kiwi Encounter at Rainbow Springs in New Zealand.

The Conservation programme called the Operation Nest Egg has been put in place at Kiwi Encounter, Rainbow Springs,  Rotorua, New Zealand  to try and slow the decline of kiwi birds and hopefully turn kiwi bird numbers around.  Operation Nest egg program has helped to raise the survival rate of kiwi chicks in the wild to 60-70%.

Here's the latest update on Phoenix:   Phoenix has had his first health check and is doing very well.  He is in great shape, growing nicely, healthy eyes and tummy and very energetic, weighing in around 682gms.
