Non-wild animals

Kiwi
An average of 27 kiwi are killed by predators EVERY WEEK. That’s a population decline of around 1,400 kiwi every year (or 2%). At this rate, kiwi may disappear from the mainland in our lifetime. Just one hundred years ago, kiwi numbered in the millions.
A single roaming dog can wipe out an entire kiwi population in a matter of days
Approximately 20% of the kiwi population is under management.
Kakapo
The kakapo (Strigops habroptila) is a Critically Endangered, giant, nocturnal parrot. It is a classic example of evolution on an isolated island, and has a number of characteristic features that make this species unique. The kakapo is the only member of the subfamily Strigopinae and is the only flightless parrot in the world. It is also the heaviest parrot known and is possibly the longest-lived; the oldest known kakapo was elderly when found in 1975 and was still alive in 2002.
Those were the only two animals that I thought that wasn't wild animals 

Wild Animals

Wild Animals

Pekapeka Bats,

The only two species left are the lesser short-tailed bat and long-tailed bat. They are the only native land mammal of New Zealand.

Hector's Dolphin,

Hector’s dolphins are the world’s smallest dolphin species. They are named after Sir James Hector, who first examined a dolphin specimen. 

Kea Parrot,

Kea are the only alpine parrot in the world and are most commonly found in the Arthur's Pass National Park  and on the road to Milford Sound in the Fiordland National Park. Warning: these cheeky parrots like dismantling cars.

Hamilton's Frog,

A fun fact: Hamilton’s frogs do not croak.

Yellow-Eyes Penguins,

Yellow-eyed penguins are found around the south east of New Zealand, Banks Peninsula and Stewart Island.

Chevron Skink Lizards,

These lizards are only found on the Great Barrier Island and Little Barrier Island

Little Blue Penguins,

Little blue penguins are not completely unique to New Zealand, but New Zealand sure has the most amount waddling on the southern coastlines and off-shore islands. 

Fur Seal,

Although fur seals tend to stick to the coast, they have been known to wander into people’s backyards.

Tuatara,

Tuataras are the only surviving reptile species from the dinosaur era.

Maui Dolphin,

This is just a subspecies of Hector’s Dolphin. Honestly, who doesn’t want more pictures of dolphins?

Favourite activity

My first favourite activity was the sailing bit it was so cool it made me feel that I wanted to go ask my Dad if I go sale. My second favourite activity was how we could explore the beach it was so fun when I explore the beach with my family. My third favourite activity was how I can spend days exploring the cosmopolitan streets and bays of Auckland, but its main attraction is found beyond the city limits. Now my second to last favourite activity is how Auckland's rugged coastline with dramatic cliffs and that rolling down the hills is simply stunning. Last but not lest my last favourite activity is driving to the native rain forest of the Waitakere Ranges to enjoy a treetop walk and see more of New Zealand's unique flora and fauna. Thanks for reading this

New Zealand

The patchwork history of Maori, European, Pacific  Island and Asian cultures, New Zealand has become a melting-pot population - but one with some uniting features that make it unique in the world.
Today, of the 4.4 million New Zealanders (informally know as Kiwi), approximately 69% are of European descent, 14.6% are indigenous Māori, 9.2% Asian and 6.9% non-Māori Pacific Islanders.
Geographically, over three-quarters of the population live in the North Island, with one-third of the total population living in Auckland. The other main cities of Wellington, Christchurch and Hamilton are where the majority of the remaining Kiwis dwell. 

Matareke

On Saturday I went to the Matareke I went there with my two cousin and my two sister and there friend. We went there two times and it was so much fun. When we got there we walked in this kind of maze full of lights but it was full of mud but it was still fun.
