Manukura, one of the world’s rarest birds, has been destroyed
The Guardian wrote on Monday.
Manokura was taken to a wildlife hospital at Massey University in Palmerston North, New Zealand, in early December, as game rangers discover that he has lost weight.
The study found that he became ill due to an unfertilized egg that he was unable to lay. Although it was surgically removed, the bird was unable to recover and died on Sunday.
A manokura hatched from an egg in May 2011. The large flightless bird of kiwi was not an albino, but its plumage is white due to a genetic condition called leucism. According to information from the Mount Bruce Nature Conservation Center in New Zealand, it was the first white kiwi to hatch from eggs as a result of its breeding program.
Due to the special birds, the number of visitors to the Nature Conservation Center has increased significantly.
Manokura, as the center’s “ambassador,” drew attention to the importance of protecting rare animal species.
