Sccop news:
"These birds, which haven’t been seen on the Auckland mainland for around a century, "
“Kakariki have been translocated to offshore islands within the last 40 years but the only documented translocation of the species to a mainland site in 1990 failed. Such failure is attributed to limited predator control at the release area,”

kakariki where still quite common in areas not far from the this park right up into the 1960s, and there is still at least 1 small population. A known ferrit/stoat population still exists on private land in the area which is basically uncontolled.
I know this land rather well, my family settled and broke it in during the early 1900s and we where ther only a couple months ago.

I certainly hope all goes well, i do believe that this is the wrong time of year to do such a release.
