The Kakapo of New Zealand is critically endangered and only 103 remain in the wild1

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 low-frequency mating boom that can travel several kilometres

The kakapo can only be found in New Zealand and every year countless people from around the world - including dozens of hard working volunteers – give their time and energy trying to save the kākāpō from the brink of extinction.
