Protection for Kiwi birds but not Kiwi Kids

<h2><strong>New Zealand has a unique wildlife that our Conservation Department rightly needs to protect.</strong></h2>
The Wildlife Act 1953 Section 67A states that it is an offence punishable by up to 6 months in prison and/or a fine of up to $100,000 plus $5000 per extra head of wildlife or egg disturbed or destroyed.

What constitutes an offence includes: capturing, hunting, killing, buying, robbing or disturbing the nest of absolutely protected wildlife.

<strong>How can we have such strong punishments for harming unborn kiwi birds yet the taxpayer <em>pays</em> for the destruction of so many thousands of unborn kiwi children every year?</strong>
