Kākāpō

Conservation status
In serious trouble

Our most exquisitely perfumed bird. It’s like its feathers have been dipped in a musky array of essential oils that could come straight from a Middle Eastern perfumier. We’re all cheering as it waddles back from the brink of extinction. The kākāpō was even endorsed by Stephen Fry.

Squawk squawk! Last year I helped to get the kākāpō to second place, and now I'm back to help take the crown. I'm a primary teacher by day, ridiculous meme maker by night. Sharing ridiculous kākāpō facts and protecting the environment are just a few of the things I'm passionate about. Like the kākāpō, I smell fantastic and occasionally fall out of trees. #teamkakapo
