Kākāpō Recovery’s Prestige stand has been on the move again!
The prestige exhibition stand, which travelled a mahoosive 11,760 miles from our office to Wellington, New Zealand, has begun its campaign on flagship bird Sirocco’s “Spokesbird Tour.” The tour – which Sirocco himself will be attending despite his packed social calendar – is taking place at the Orokonui Ecosanctuary in Dunedin. It aims to educate the New Zealand public about the problems faced by the kākāpō, a flightless parrot of which there are only 148 left. It is through human intervention – the destruction of the kākāpō’s natural habitat – that the species has been driven to near-extinction, so Kākāpō Recovery’s work is vital to making sure the public comprehend the threats faced by the birds and preventing the animals from dying out.
Opting for a reusable and sustainable Prestige stand, Kākāpō Recovery can easily move their exhibit from location to location to spread the word about the kākāpō as far as possible. The eco-friendly nature of the stand means Kākāpō Recovery can continue to protect the kākāpō’s habitat. Instead of destroying the materials used to build the stand, Kākāpō Recovery can pack it up and use it again, and again, and again. Prestige stands are light and easily compactible, so Kākāpō Recovery don’t have to worry about using a larger, less-efficient vehicle to transport their exhibit. Conservation biologist Dr Andrew Digby said that the “display panels look awesome,” and, as always, we are delighted to have provided a client with a stand that puts a smile on their face.
We continue to parrot our support for Kākāpō Recovery as it is a cause we feel very enthusiastic about. We are proud sponsors of the programme and love to do what we can to help our flightless friends. Our stand was unleashed just in time for both World Habitat Day and World Animal Day last week – what a way to celebrate!
