VIDEO - To Save the Kakapo

The Nature Store in New Zealand has this hour long video available about our dear friend the Kakapo Parrot. Both PAL (Europe/NZ/Aus) and NTSC (US/Canada/Japan) versions are available. Buy direct from The Nature Store.
This video captures for the first time on film the secret lives of the kakapo and documents the enormous effort involved in saving a species from extinction. Watch as, for the first time in years, males make their booming love calls through the night and the kakapo colony produces twelve precious eggs. But will the chicks survive?
