What Kākāpō Recovery does

Kākāpō Recovery combines the efforts of scientists, rangers and volunteers, who are charged with looking after the few remaining kākāpō in the world.

It sounds daunting, but it’s all about doing some fairly simple things over and over again, and doing them well.

Here’s how Kākāpō Recovery works:


In the wild:

We manage the birds to ensure they are healthy and ready for breeding.



We research new ideas that might help ensure a future for the kākāpō.



We develop new technology that helps us in our daily work.
