This Site, us, and already Several Site Members fully and freely support, Luis Please read below and contact Luis giving your further support. Admin. My name is Luis Ortiz-Catedral. in the last 3 years I've studied kakariki on Tiritiri Matangi Island. My current research (PhD at Massey University, AUCKLAND CAMPUS) focuses on the behaviour of captive-bred and wild-sourced kakariki. I intend to release mixed flocks containing birds captured on Little Barrier Island (LBI) and also captive birds. At this stage I'm still preparing permits and other paper work to undergo a disease screening on LBI. I would like to know if any of you would be interested in donating some of your birds for this project. There are some minimal requirements: The birds should be close to the wild type (i.e. as "pure" as possible) Preferably young birds Birds without signs of "attachment" to owners or ultra-friendly behaviours I'm after 30-40 birds to be ready for release between December this year or March next year at the latest. Another aspect of my research involves recently fledged young. I want to test two tail-mount transmitters on near-to recently fledged kakariki. I need to test this on captive birds first to identify any potential problems...the next step will be wild birds. Does any of you have nestlings at the moment? If so, would you be interested in helping with this part of my project? Please contact me if you want to discuss/help All the best and thanks for your time and consideration LUIS ( luiscatedral@yahoo.co.nz )
