The Orange-fronted parakeet is New Zealand's most endangered forest bird with fewer than 100-300 left in the wild.
The Orange-fronted parakeet or kakariki karaka is a small parakeet found in parts of beech forest in Canterbury high country and Nelson. There are around 100-300 left in the wild and that number continues to decrease. This species has already been considered extinct twice before, and now the bird approaches its third extinction. Rangers have already scoured the valley for hidden strongholds. This time, there isn't a secret population.
The Department of Conservation is working relentlessly to save this species. Christchurch Helicopters has worked closely with these birds over the years and realizes the significance and are passionate to save the Orange-fronted parakeet.
Use of Funds:
Funds will be used to help the recovery of the critically endangered Orange-fronted parakeet. The funds will be targeted specifically around the expansion of the breeding and monitoring program currently carried out with the Department of Conservation and the Isaac Conservation and Wildlife Trust. This work will significantly increase the number of captive breed parakeets for translocation into the wild and boost this species' chance of survival.
