The kakapo is one of the rarest parrots in the world:It’s flightless
It’s the world’s heaviest parrot
It’s possibly the oldest living bird and
It has a subsonic mating boom that can travel several kilometres

Here is an endangered species for you to reblog and discuss current conservations efforts about, tumblr. There’s less than 150 of this species of bird left on earth, entirely. Breeding efforts are based around food that the females eat, which is kind of a weird fruit that isn’t available year-round or sometimes even annually seasonally. Scientists developed a little machine that they put nest-side to put a blanket over the eggs when the females leave to go eat at night. There weren’t any new eggs or chicks this year though - the second in a row. Here’s hoping for next spring.
You’ve seen the gif of Mark Carwardine getting his head humped by one of these birds, with Stephen Fry commenting - the last time Mark saw one of these birds it was with Douglas Adams for Last Chance to See back in 1990.

I have really fuzzy paws
I like checking if things in front of me are edible
My ears are small, so no one knows what I am.
I love buttons
