$3.60 Rowi gummed stamp.

Rowi are the rarest of the five species of kiwi. There is only one natural population of about 550 rowi, which reside in Ōkārito forest and surrounds in South Westland. They can also be found on three predator-free islands near Cook Strait. Unlike some other kiwi species, male and female rowi take turns incubating their eggs. Rowi juveniles often stay with their family group for years.
