Matt The Kiwi Races To Save Egg From Flood |

This Christchurch Kiwi from the Kiwi Recovery Programme at Willowbank saved his egg from the flood waters after a week of rain here.
"He was surrounded by floodwater from the torrential downpour on Sunday and had spent the night gathering leaves to place under the egg to raise it up."
The keepers have now channelled out the water and made sure he has dry leaves... although before long they will take the egg away to be incubated to encourage this pair to lay another egg.....
Hope they take special note of this heroic rescue when they name the chick :)
