Apteryx australis
The kiwi is New Zealand's most ancient living bird and a biological oddity. Flightless and largely nocturnal its one-off evolutionary design holds all sorts of biological records. Kiwi build burrows and lay a huge egg that produces a mature fully-feathered independent chick. And that's where they are at their most vulnerable. Introduced predators and ferral cats or dogs kill the chicks and can erradicate a whole generation of kiwi. That's why special programs to protect the kiwi are in place. Eggs and chicks are removed from the bush to return them again to the wild when they gained enough weight to be big enough to fight off predators. The kiwi is highly threatened and also the icon of New Zealand.

An aurora (plural: auroras), sometimes referred to as polar lights, northern lights (aurora borealis) or southern lights (aurora australis), is a natural light display in the Earths sky, predominantly seen in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions. Auroras are produced when the magnetosphere is sufficiently disturbed by the solar wind that the trajectories of charged particles in both solar wind and magnetospheric plasma, mainly in the form of electrons and protons, precipitate them into the upper atmosphere (thermosphere/exosphere) due to Earths magnetic field, where their energy is lost
