  • Meet two extraordinary young New Zealanders, Scarlett (11) and Tiana (10) who fundraised for Kakapo! They ran their stall at Ostend Market on Waiheke Island, where Tiana lives and Scarlett used to live.They gave away kakapo information pamphlets, that they had made themselves, with every purchase. As a result, the girls were able to 'adopt' Bluster-Murphy with the $140 they raised. Bravo!
