kiwis are going extinct because they are too adorable for this realm.
many evil doods were confused by them and couldn't comprehend.
the evil doods used invasive species to kill them off and tore up their homes.

I love kiwi birds so seeing this stamp kinda killed me a little. I havn't kept up with their population so I didn't even know they were in trouble which isn't very good of me.

I'm a New Zealander, and let's just say that not all of us are so very anti-stoat.

Since when was wanting to save the kiwi considered "anti-stoat?" Stoats don't even belong there, so what's the big deal?

Stoats are superior to kiwi in very way. We must let them rule New Zealand like the gods they are.

They're invasive, useless rats that need to be extirpated. End of story.
