16th century world map

World map, published around 1565 in Venice, Italy, by Italian mapmaker Ferando Bertelli. The title of the map: Universale Descrittione di Tutta la Terra Conosciuta Fin Qui (universal description to the end of the known Earth). In the past few hundred years, the Americas (left) and the sea passage to India around Africa, and the islands of South-East Asia, had all been discovered, but these regions remained poorly mapped. This map shows a vast and unknown continent to the south, and Australia has not yet been discovered. Illustrations of ships and strange sea creatures are seen on the oceans, and strange animals are seen on the unknown lands. The winds are represented at upper right and left

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.
