Description Edit

Natcoll Christchurch 2010 animation class present to you:

A short animation about New Zealand's endangered parrot the Kakapo and their mating habits.

The male Kakapo will fill his chest pouch with air and then lets out an almighty 'boom'. This boom carries for up to five kilometres, and attracts females from across the land.

The female will then watch him boom, and decide whether he would be a good mate. This type of mating is called 'lek mating' - it's when birds use an area to perform for courtship.

as of February 2010, only 122 known Kakapo are still alive.
