Kākā live in this hectare. The word kākā is te reo Māori and means parrot, or “to screech”. There are probably fewer than 10,000 individuals left, mainly due to habitat loss, however native planting corridors have allowed it to travel from Masterton to Wellington in a single day, helping with the genetic diversity of the species. Many kākā have been released at Pūkaha over the years.
By sponsoring the Kākā Territory you will be supporting our team by ensuring traps are set and maintained throughout the year to provide a safe habitat for our native species such as the kākā who nest high up in the trees. Your donation will also go towards checking the kākā nest boxes throughout breeding season and monitoring their chicks.
