The kiwi , a flightless nocturnal bird unique to New Zealand, is the symbol for everything from New Zealand.
Before the captive kiwi were released the iconic birds had been extinct in the southern North Island for well over a century.
The Taranaki Kiwi Trust has released five kiwi into the park already with a further nine on the way - positive action that may halt the kiwi's decline into extinction.
I find it amusing that the country's air force logo is a kiwi , a bird that can't even fly.
The Kiwis do security patrols around the base perimeter and man the watchtower on a roster system.
The fact that so many Kiwis got behind Jeff and voted should in itself show what he could've done for the show.
Sole, a Kiwi with an Italian mother and a Scottish father, has been excellent this championship.
One thing I've really realised upon spending a bit of time around Kiwis again is that New Zealand English really is different from UK English.
I'd classify the Kiwis as honest, basically, though there are always exceptions.
The Dominion Post reports that Kiwis are indecisive on polling day because 30 percent of us make up our minds in the last months of an election (and 16% on the day itself).
