213 ! Today the youngest chick, Stella-3-B-19, becomes a juvenile and so now all of this year’s cohort are counted towards the official population. The population has increased 70% in the last 3.5 years, due to 2 bumper breeding seasons.

Spot the . Stella-1-B-19 not doing a very good of hiding on Whenua Hou today. His choice of roost site will improve as he gets older.

Currently on Whenua Hou, fitting GPS loggers to some of this year's cohort of juvenile to monitor dispersal and home ranges. Last night: Pura-1-B-19 (5 months old) just after dark.

Unique doesn't begin to explain the . The only flightless parrot. Weighing up to 8 lbs/ 3.5kg, it's also the world's heaviest parrot...or smallest, feathered dog. They only breed 3x a decade, when fruit of the rimu tree is abundant.

Yesterday we caught Nora-3-B-19, the one surviving produced by artificial insemination this year. He's doing well.

This rollercoaster breeding season continues with another blow: juvenile Margaret-Maree-2-B-19, found dead last week, died of aspergillosis. Trying to find out if he died from earlier infection not visible on CT (most likely), or newer infection.

A note of caution: the population will decrease before it increases again. Not all of these juveniles will survive to adulthood, and we’ll likely lose some adults too. Despite the population increase, are still critically endangered.

Stella-1-B-19 getting a macadamia treat after having a logger fitted today. We're using GPS to monitor juvenile movements and home ranges.

A very wet night on Whenua Hou meant that the juvenile just arrived from were a bit bedraggled today: they're not used to rain! There are 6 chicks in the weaning pen to be released when they're ready.

NZ still has some huge forests: more than enough habitat for all the which will be produced in the next few hundred years. We just need to get rid of the stoats, cats etc out of them! Our ultimate goal is to release kākāpō back onto the mainland.
