The Māori people have an incredible and unique relationship with the natural world. The kiwi is a bizarre-looking bird, but the Māori value this bird like no other. Due to the spread of foreign invasive species New Zealand is currently experiencing an ecological meltdown, where the indigenous species and ecosystems are disappearing at an unprecedented rate. The kiwi is a bird severely affected by this and one Māori man, Ian Tarei, is determined to protect the kiwis on his land. After many years of trying to eradicate these pests, Ian searches for a new solution that could provide a sustainable solution for his kiwis.
