Kākāpō at a Waikato sanctuary in Houdini-like escapes

From Midday Report, 12:48 pm on 26 January 2024

There have been more escapes at a Waikato Sanctuary by a number of wily kākāpō. 

As a result several birds at Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari, which are part of an historic habitat trial, are being banished back to predator free islands, after escaping over the predator fence.

Kākāpō recovery team lead Deidre Vercoe spoke to Charlotte Cook.
