What people are saying:

This Kiwi Center is actually a mini zoo. In addition to watching Kiwi, the national treasure of New Zealand, you can also feed eels and catch crayfish in person. It is very suitable for children to play. We are the first tourists to visit that day (doors open at 10:00). Feeding eels is the most popular activity in the zoo. There are only 15 people. Listen to the introduction of the guide to learn more about the life habits and ecological distribution of eels. It is also mentioned that the wild big eels here in Hokitika are mainly exported to China, Japan and other countries. Everyone who participated in the activity had at least two opportunities to feed the eels personally, and the children had a great time. To visit Kiwi birds, keep absolutely quiet. This kind of bird is very timid. It has mutated during the evolution from birds to mammals. It has no wings, a sharp and long mouth, and its survival rate is extremely low, and it is particularly vulnerable. Attacks by dogs, rabbits and other animals have played a huge role in the Kiwi bird population restoration project led by the New Zealand government. Now the number of Kiwi birds in the country has risen from the least 2000 to 70,000. All in all, the Kiwi bird is a very cute, rare and fragile animal.
