Pureora

*4 October 2017* 20 kokako were caught at Waipapa (Pureora Forest Park) and released safely at Mt Pirongia; the first attempt at reestablishing a population here since the last few old birds were lifted out in the 1990s. We've just started surveying at Pirongia; three pairs found so far.

*20 June 2017* The Waikato Times covers the release of the first pair of kokako at Pirongia, handsome boy Rongomau (below) and Rangimarie: https://www.stuff.co.nz/environment/93882074/the-first-kokako-have-returned-to-mount-pirongia
