Pukaha Mount Bruce National Wildlife Centre Questions & Answers

Boulder, Colorado

Hi . I feel like this is obvious from pics, but want to verify - you can take photos of the kiwis? In many places you can't, so I just wanted to make sure.

Thanks!

As long as you don't use a flash.

Don't think they allow flash - but if you have a decent camera snap away

You can take photos but no flash allowed in the kiwi house. If they come up close to the glass you stand a better chance, though the white one is quite easy to spot once your eyes get used to the dark.

Photos are allowed but no flash. It is fairly dim in there and you would be shooting through glass so do not count on getting more than a grainy image. But you can get a shot on a phone that is distinctively a kiwi.

You can but it is best to use slow camera setting as it is quite dark and you are not allowed to use a flash.

it is very dark in the kiwi house, you have to wait 30 seconds to get used to the light, kiwis are nocturnal, their clocks have been altered to enable us to see them, I don't think there were any notices up about photos but obviously you cannot use flash, its so dark you will need a tripod

There was no restriction on taking photos of kiwis or any other birds or fish etc when we visited but, you would be lucky to get a good photo of the kiwi as the kiwi house is very dark. We could see the white kiwi only, just becuase of his colour. Other fiolk could see more kiwis but we could not. I hope this is helpful. It is a wonderful place to visit.

The Kiwi are in a very dimly lighted location; there are no restrictions against photography, however. I suspect they would frown against any flash. I took a photo with my phone.

You are NOT allowed to use flashes in the dark enclosure. There are signs saying so.
