Photo: Kaka Bird New Zealand

A kaka bird at the Pukaha Mount Bruce National Wildlife Center on the North Island of New Zealand.

The kaka bird is one species of bird that is considered to be endangered and the Pukaha Mount Bruce National Wildlife Center in New Zealand are trying to make sure that we do not lose these birds. You can visit the National Wildlife Center and observe the Kaka bird and learn what is being done to save New Zealand's wildlife and how they are eventually restored to their natural environment.

There are three known species of the Kaka bird, one that is extinct and the other two are native to the South Island and the North Island of New Zealand. Both types are brown in colour except that the South Island Kaka has a white crown.

The Kaka bird usually resides in the forest and spends a majority of its days high in the trees. The Kaka enjoys a good feast of fruit, flowers and insects but sometimes finds itself up against a few competitors for the same meal.
