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.
