See Sirocco the kākāpō

If you live in or near Wellington, here is a great opportunity to get up close to a kākāpōSiroccolandia: return of the kākāpō, with Alfie Kākā | Zealandia: The Karori Sanctuary Experience

I went to see Sirocco at Zealandia last year. It was a great experience to see for yourself how large these gorgeous birds are. Sirocco's keeper had a lot of interesting things to tell us too. The visits are all in the evening because kākāpō are nocturnal birds. It was enjoyable visiting the sanctuary at night. As we walked along to Sirocco's enclosure we heard the kiwi and morepork calling, which was a treat in itself.
