 Ambassador Mike Moore named the Smithsonian National Zoo’s newest Kiwi chick, “Omana,” after an area southeast of Auckland, New Zealand. The National Zoo felt it appropriate to ask Ambassador Moore to name the Kiwi chick since there are five species of kiwi, all of which are flightless and unique to New Zealand. The National Zoo is home to several brown kiwis, the only kiwi that can be seen outside of New Zealand. Omana is the third female brown kiwi that hatched at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo on 11 December 2011.
