In 1981 there were just 23. The Kakī, aka the Black Stilt, now number at over 130 adults in
the wild. We believe the mahi from the excellent teams at Forest & Bird and the Department of
Conservation deserves recognition. Support the Kakī to become the 2019 Bird of the Year! Let's
get to spot tahi.
Kia kaha Kakī!
Voting closes at 5pm on Sunday 10 November so do it now before it's too late. Let's get Kakī to spot tahi.
