Room 9 raised $100 at our Win, Win Event so we decided to adopt Waikawa the kākāpō.
Waikawa hatched in 2011 and lives on Codfish Island/Whenua Hou. She was the first kākāpō to hatch successfully after being artificially incubated immediately after the egg was laid.
Sadly, only one of her four chicks survived to fledge. While she proved to be an excellent mum and had an impressively huge and waterproof hollow under a rock for her nest, intense rain caused flash flooding on the island, which wiped out her nest. Her one chick is called Makorea, meaning survivor.
