Too important to lose, some of New Zealands “At Risk” wildlife are Wanted.

Large, flightless and nocturnal, the Kakapo is an eccentric parrot which can live for decades. Kakapo are the heaviest parrot in the world. The males can weigh over 2 kg.
Aside from being hunted and the loss of habitat, the most devastating to its survival was the introduction of predators such as rats, cats and stoats. In ancient history, its only predator was the now extinct Giant Eagle, and it developed the habit of nesting, rearing and feeding its young on the ground. This nesting behaviour made its eggs and chicks easy prey for introduced predators, especially cats.
