Bring Kakapo Back to Maungatautari
"It is the aspiration of MEIT and Kakapo Recovery that kakapo will once again be found on Maungatautari."
We hope to have Kakapo living permanently on Maungatautari in the very near future. Sirocco's visit is the first step in this direction. We know, through trials with Sirocco, that while we can keep pests out, kakapo are intelligent enough to climb out of the fence!
We have designed a clip on attachment that fits on to the inside of our pest-proof fence to keep kakapo in. The cost to fit the attachment onto the existing fence is around $500,000.
If you'd like to donate to the Clip On fund to help bring kakapo back to the maunga, please follow the donations above and put kakapo 'kakapo' in the reference line!
For donations to the Kokako reintroduction fund please complete the attached form and return to the office at the above address.
A receipt is provided for you as all donations are tax refundable.
