Adoption assumes:

Adoptions of individual kākāpō are not exclusive, meaning that multiple people can adopt the same bird. Adoption packages are able to be sent world-wide.

The 13 birds selected are from our current population for adoption. Adoption will be a symbolic adoption of course because – as kākāpō are a “taonga” (treasured) species to New Zealand Maōri – no-one can actually “own” or have dibs on a kākāpō.

In order to sort your adoption out, we request that you adopt AT LEAST two weeks before the applicable postage deadlines!
