KAKAPO – BAYKUŞ PAPAĞANI
Kakapo is the heaviest species of parrot in the world. It is endemic species for New Zealand (it cannot be found anywhere else). Kakapo inhabits lowland forests and subalpine scrublands. Thanks to the accelerated habitat loss, uncontrolled hunting (because of the meat and feathers) and introduction of new species, current population of kakapos consists of 125 birds (according to the latest count from 2014). Kakapo is classified as critically endangered and it is one of the rarest birds on the planet.
Kangaroo belongs to marsupials (animals with pouches in which babies finish their development after birth). Kangaroos include large number of different species that vary in size and shape. They live in the Australia and New Guinea and can be found in different types of habitats: open scrublands, grasslands, woodlands, deserts…Most species of kangaroos are either protected by law or numerous enough to form a stable population in the wild.
