International Year of Biodiversity
This project enabled young people throughout New Zealand to write messages about biodiversity on cardboard feathers and attach them to a giant wire mesh kākāpō.
The two giant kākāpō visited schools, museums and zoos collecting messages about why biodiversity matters, what they want world leaders to do about its loss, and what they are doing themselves.
Find out about this exciting project and how you can make your own Words on a Wing kākāpō.
Watch the plumage grow on the two giant kākāpō as young people throughout New Zealand attach their messages about biodiversity.
Make your own kākāpō! Write a message on a cardboard feather and attach it to your bird to start a conversation about biodiversity.
