With only 400 left in the wild, the Haast tokoeka has the unfortunate title of being the world's rarest kiwi. Follow Almer, this season's smallest chick, in his first year of life in a ground-breaking conservation program: ”Operation: Nest Egg.” Watch as he grows from a tiny ball of fluff into a 4 lb predator-fighting machine, and witness the dedication of the people striving to give him a chance at life.
