Recent reports have revealed that a critically endangered kakapo bird has been found dead. The death of the bird first discovered 30 years back, has raised questions over the protective measures deployed for the safety and preservation of this species.
The report regarding the death of the male bird, Barnard came into notice, after a team of rangers went searching for him last weekend on Codfish Island, near Stewart Island, so as to change his transmitter.
However, the team was able to recover just the body of the bird. They supposed that Barnard must have died three months ago. Kakapo Recovery programme organizers asserted that this is another shocking and disappointing news. The team is highly upset especially because the death of Barnard came into notice after three months.
The team has not suggested any reason behind the death of Barnard. However, they suspect that he might have died due to his growing age. Kakapo Recovery programme manager Deidre Vercoe Scott asserted that they are carry out these health checks and transmitter change once in a year. Still they are proud that they have such a technology.
Ms. Scott said, “But that technology is constantly changing to increase the information that we can collect. We may be experiencing some problems with how we interpret these complex transmitter signals accurately”.
