KAKAPO PARROTS - Fourth chick hatched last weekend...

The Kakapo population now stands at 87! An update at The Kakapo Recovery Programme has the latest...
Kakapo Programme officer Phil Marsh reports that all chicks are healthy and putting on weight and things are looking good for their future.

Mention also needs to be made of the fine jobs that Margaret Maree, Cyndy, and Flossie (with a pair of chicks) are doing to look after their hungry babies. Sarah and Alice are also both sitting on fertile eggs so all fingers and toes are crossed for a new crop of nestlings in early to mid April.
