DescriptionA much loved large, flightless, long-lived (est 90 years), nocturnal and lek-breeding endemic native parrot. One of the rarest and heaviest parrots in the world, which only breeds when food is abundant. Down to 86 birds in the 1990's the Kakapo entered into a heavily managed breeding program. Due to good food sources during breeding season in 2019 the Kakapo reached a record population of apx 210. Another good breeding season in 2022 has increased the population to apx 252. The highest in 70 years. Well done to the intensely managed Kakapo recovery program.
The Kakapo was voted New Zealand Bird of the Year in 2020. Voting is in apx October/November every year and is always an exciting and heavily competed contest.
The Kakapo sparkly decoration was introduced in 2020.
This decoration is made of fabric, sequins, beads and coloured metallic threads. It is nice and light for posting. If you need to send them internationally we can do it for you. Handy information - The cost to send up to 10x NZ Bird sparkly decorations to the same international address is the same as sending 1x.
