Kōkako is an endangered forest bird which is endemic to New Zealand. It is slate-grey with wattles & a black mask. It is one of three species of New Zealand Wattlebird, the other two being the near threatened Tieke (saddleback) & the extinct Huia. Also known as "NZ Crow " BUT it is not a crow at all.

This is the world’s fattest, flightless parrot. They’re found in New Zealand but numbers are in critical condition due to the colonization of their island which brought cats and stoats along. Only about 128 of these birds remain on predator-free islands.

As the human population grows, deforestation increases. As a result, many animals are at risk of extinction, due to the loss of their natural habitat. If we don’t do something now, this could be the end of these animals.

Kakapo

The Kakapo is a relatively large, flightless, nocturnal, ground dwelling parrot of New Zealand. Critically endangered, a population of 130 remaining is estimated. Has a highly developed sense of smell.
