Please join us Wednesday 27 May at 7.30pm for the third of our virtual club talks, “Feeding the people who feed the Kakapos – Being a volunteer chef on Codfish Island” with Katja Riedel.
Katja has worked as a volunteer chef on Codfish Island on three different occassions. This tiny island off the coast of Stewart Island is home to the biggest breeding population of Kakapos, charismatic, endangered, nocturnal flightless parrots.
