Kakapo in the wild!

6 Mar 2013 - 16:20 -- Josep del Hoyo

I'm just back from four weeks in New Zealand and I've uploaded a series of videos of the Critically Endangered Kakapo taken on Codfish Island. This visit was possible thanks to a special permit from the New Zealand Department of Conservation, which is doing fantastic conservation work on the island, and assistance from Forest and Bird, the BirdLife International

Partner in New Zealand. I am very grateful to both organizations and all of the individuals who helped achieve these videos of Kakapo, which include birds booming, feeding and moving in their natural habitat, both at night and during the day. Over the following weeks, hundreds of clips from the trip will be uploaded progressively as well.
