Kakapo: Rescued from the Brink of Extinction New Zealand’s rarest parrot,
the kakapo, is the engaging subject of the winning book for the 2011 Royal
Society of New Zealand Science Book


. ‘Kakapo - Rescued from the Brink of Extinction’, written by
broadcaster and zoologist Alison Ballance and
[cid:image009.jpg@01CCA3AD.0A166010] published by Craig Potton Publishing,
tells the story of how one of New Zealand’s most charismatic but
endangered birds was saved from possible extinction through the


efforts of a dedicated group of people. The judges of the Science Book
Prize described the book as being written with ‘clarity and humour’.
“Along the way, each bird becomes a character in his or her saga, so the
reader rejoices with the hatching of every egg and is saddened by the
passing of every old kakapo.”

The publisher advises that they have limited stock remaining, and they
won’t be reprinting it in hardback - so this may be your last opportunity
to buy this wonderful book in hardback. And if further incentive is
needed, we’ve enticed the author to sign the copies you order.

Purchase ‘Kakapo: Rescued from the Brink of Extinction’ (RRP $49.95) at
20% discount, for just $40.
