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 kilometers
  • 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.
