Sirocco, the Kakapo - The Not so Flightless Parrot
Sirocco, a hand reared kakapo from the early days of the breeding program, considers himself more aligned to humans than his own type. Because of this he has become quite a celebrity, appearing on numerous occasions as the face of the kakapo. Having just flown to Auckland in early September for a stint at the zoo, he is now back in home territory and about to entertain visitors to Stewart Island. If you would like to see Sirocco, in residence on the amazing Ulva Island between 26th September and the 26th October, then check out http://stewart-island-news.com/kakapo.html for more details.
