We are home to the only kiwi bird in the UK! Please be aware that our kiwi, Manu, is nocturnal so you are not likely to see him during your day visit to the zoo.
Native to parts of New Zealand’s northern island, the kiwi prefers to live dense, sub-tropical and temperate forests.
The northern brown kiwi’s diet includes insects, worms, amphibians, berries and fruits.
The biggest threats to the northern brown kiwi are habitat loss and predation by predators such as dogs, cats and stoats.
