Team effort – Kokaho, ghost birds

  • 1 minute

Kokako @NZ Birds Online

Kōkako are another endemic bird (slightly smaller, but more mysterious) Auckland Zoo are directly involved in conserving, and another story of how conservation is absolutely no ‘walk in the park’. At times it’s more of a hike, climb, rope slide, and sometimes tumble through the park. Bird keeper Erin is responsible for leading this project, and shows us how her skills as a bird keeper help her complete a kōkako census in the Waitakere Ranges spanning 10 weeks annually.

Watch along and try and spot this ‘ghost of the forest’ – maybe you’ll think you’re up for the challenge!
