Saving the kakapo

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - MONTHLY ROUND-UP -

The kakapo is about to get some ex­tra help to save it from the brink of near ex­tinc­tion. The green na­tive bird, one of the rarest par­rots in the world, fea­tures on a list of 150 New Zealand species “pri­ori­tised” in an am­bi­tious con­ser­va­tion strat­egy launched by the gov­ern­ment this month. There are fewer than 160 kakapo, pos­si­bly the old­est liv­ing bird, left in New Zealand.
