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 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.
