Kakapo Rescue by Sy Montgomery
Kakapo are the world's largest parrots. They used to live in New Zealand until they were hunted almost to extinction by people and non native animals. With only about 80 left in the world people finally began to try to save the sweet-smelling, friendly birds. They were all moved to an island with no predators where they are monitored by a team of volunteers. This book follows the activities during two weeks on the kakapo island including births and deaths.
