Kakapo Recovery Programme

Quadrant2Design are proud sponsors of the Kakapo Recovery Programme

The story of the Kakapo is an amazing one.

New Zealands fauna evolved in isolation over millions of years, and with no large land predators to worry about, the Kakapo evolved to be the Worlds only flightless parrot.

When the Maori people arrived in New Zealand around 1200AD, they introduced alien predators such as pigs and rats, which led to a decline in Kakapo numbers.

And when the Europeans turned up, they brought with them more predators, and added land clearance for agriculture to the Kakapo’s woes.

By the 1970’s, despite some early efforts at conservation, the Kakapo was almost extinct, and the World was in danger of losing this unique species.

In 1989 the New Zealand Department of Conservation stepped in, creating the Kakapo Recovery Programme.

Kakapo Recovery now applies a sophisticated, science-based programme, towards protecting the Kakapo and increasing its numbers.

Quadrant2Design are proud to be sponsors of the Kakapo Recovery Programme, the only company outside of New Zealand to be helping in this way.

Our involvement…

Quadrant2Design’s founder Alan Jenkins spent his early years in New Zealand, developing an interest in the countrys unique flora and fauna, many of which are indigenous and endangered.

in early 2018 Alan wrote to the Kakapo Recovery Programme and asked if we could help with the communicating the plight of the Kakapo, by designing and supplying a number of exhibition stands that could be used in KRP’s educational activities.

Over the nest few months three exhibition stands were designed and manufacture for the Kakapo Recovery Programme.

The first use of the exhibition stands was at the Orokonui Ecosanctuary in Dunedin, New Zealand in an educational event undertaken by the Kakapo Recovery Programme.

Quadrant2Design will continue to support the Kakapo Recovery Programme with exhibition and graphic design and further exhibition stand materials.
