The Kakapo

The Kakapo is a unique bird

The kakapo is one of the rarest parrots in the world: • It’s flightless • It’s the world’s heaviest parrot • It's possibly the oldest living bird and • It has a subsonic mating boom that can travel several kilometres And that's just a few things that make kakapo so special! The kakapo can only be found in New Zealand and every year countless people from around the world - dozens of hard working volunteers - give their time and energy trying to save the kakapo from the brink of extinction. Most of the Kakapo Recovery takes place on remote, predator-free islands off southern New Zealand. av>
