About 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 low-frequency 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 - including dozens of hard working volunteers – give their time and energy trying to save the kakapo from the brink of extinction.
