SIROCCO: THE KAKAPO MISSION
A wildlife fiction about Kakapo, a critically endangered New-Zealand parrot. Discover this incredible animal, who lives at night, lives for more than 100 years, cannot fly, and smells like a freesia flower… or a clarinet case.
1997. Sirroco the kakapo was born on Codfish Island, in New-Zealand. He is one of the remaining 126 kakapos in the world. Don and Deirdre, two scientists, decide to separate the little bird from his mother, because he has severe respiratory problems. They manage to save his life, but when Sirocco gets bigger, he has to figure out how to survive in the wild on his own, after growing up in an incubator with human beings. Making friends and finding love isn’t easy when nobody’s ever shown you! A story based on true events; Sirocco is a real bird and became an ambassador for kakapos after featuring in a documentary about endangered species (he even has his own Facebook page).
