At Codfish Island.
|Common Name||Owl Parrot|
The kakapo is a flightless parrot that lives in New Zealand, where it had few natural predators. However, the cats, rats and dogs introduced by human settlers resulted in a massive decline in the kakapo population. The species has been saved by a captive-breeding programme. The remaining 62 birds have been released on three remote, predator-free islands in an attempt to re-establish wild populations.
