Verse of The Day
“Ko tenei hei whakaaro mo koutou, ko tera i a Karaiti Ihu: Ahakoa hoki i a ia te ahua o te Atua, kihai i meinga e ia te rite ki te Atua hei taonga kapo mai; Engari i mea i a ia ano kia poaha, ka mau ki te ahua o te pononga, ka meinga kia rite ki te tangata; A ka kitea nei tona ahua e rite ana ki to te tangata, ka whakapapaku ia i a ia, ka meinga kia ngohengohe ahakoa ki te mate, ae ra, ki te mate o te ripeka.” (Philippians 2:5-8)

A kiwi that survived being hit by a car has drowned, less than a month after being released into the wild in Northland.

The three-year-old female bird, called Dark Star, spent two months recovering from a broken foot at Auckland Zoo after being struck by a car north of Whangarei in May, and was released back into the wild on 15 July.

A kiwi ranger for the Department of Conservation in Whangarei, Peter Graham, says when he went to do a health check on Darkstar on Thursday he found her at the end of a blocked culvert.
