Kākāpō adoptions are currently closed while the Kākāpō Recovery team focuses on the ongoing breeding season. We expect adoptions will reopen later in 2022. Check back in July for a further update.
There are only 197 kākāpō alive today.
The symbolic adoption of a kākāpō is a great way to support the important work of Kākāpō Recovery.
All profits from the adoptions scheme contribute directly to the conservation of this unique and remarkable species. This includes funding monitoring equipment, supporting current research objectives and contributing towards the management of breeding seasons.
We have selected 10 kākāpō with unique stories to act as ambassadors for the species. You can adopt them below.
You can choose to receive either a physical or digital adoption pack.
