Kakapos are large, flightless parrots live in only one place – two islands off the coast of New Zealand. Kakapos are so rare, that they were almost extinct. Opossums eat the same food as kakapos. Fortunately, the New Zealand Department of Conservation stepped in to help the kakapos. Scientists gathered all the birds and took them to two islands where there are no predators – no foxes, no cats, no wild dogs, no rats. Here, scientists are taking care of the birds and helping their numbers grow. Here's a fun word search puzzle game for your kids, go here.
