About this book

One of the most endangered birds in the world, female Kakapo's have only produced six fertile eggs in the past ten years. This is the story of the first kakapo to be raised in captivity, taken from the diaries of her keeper. As Hoki matures to breeding age in the wild it is hoped she will be for the kakapo what Old Blue was for the black robin - the lynch pin for its survival.
