Manukura gets a new boyfriend- Introducing Frickleton

Pukaha has welcomed Frickleton. This handsome male kiwi has joined the Pukaha team from Willow Bank Wildlife Reserve to be a potential mate for the rare white kiwi at Pukaha, Manukura. You can see him in the kiwi house and hear all about him at our 12 pm daily kiwi talk. Frickleton's arrival does mean Manukura is away at Wildbase Wildlife hospital. As we are hopeful these two become a breeding pair it is vital we let Frickleton settle into the aviary and make it his space. In the wild a male kiwi calls a female into his territory so we are hoping while Manukura is away at Wildbase this will happen.
