Living with Kākā

Kaka Bird

A Presentation by Forest and Bird, World Parrot Trust and Native Bird Rescue with guest speaker Ellen Irwin from Zealandia.

It is essential to learn how to live with Kākā as they become a more common bird that lives among us. How we relate to them will determine if they survive or if they thrive.
Karen Saunders the Wildlife Rehabilitator at Native Bird Rescue on Waiheke Island, Luis Ortiz-Catedral, Director of the Oceania Conservation Program for the World Parrot Trust and Ellen Irwin the Lead Ranger for the Conservation Team at Zealandia Te Māra a Tāne will share with you stories from Waiheke and the hard learned experiences Wellington has faced while they learnt to live with kākā, especially the challenges around feeding kākā and how we can avoid killing them with kindness.
This will be an hour-long presentation followed by questions and a mix and mingle time with snacks and drinks provided before and after the presentation.
Please RSVP to help us with catering numbers or just turn up on the night. Please email nativebirdrescue@gmail.com if you have any queries.
