The lastest kōkako census in 2019 recorded 40 pairs and up to 20 individual birds in the Pūkaha reserve. Kōkako were recorded as living in this hectare. Kōkako have an extraordinarily haunting song. Like church organs playing alongside a melodic flute, these kōkako duets can be heard dominating the dawn chorus.
By sponsoring the Kōkako 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 kōkako and 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 and well as supporting our kōkako censuses. A highly skilled team head out into the forest to count our population and also observe other wildlife we have hidden away!
