Takahē, Porphyrio hochstetteri

Māori name:Takahē

Takahē released on Maungatautari Mountain, Waikato district, North Island, New Zealand. In June 2006, this pair of the critically endangered Takahē were flown from two of New Zealand's small off-shore islands to a protected area on Maungatautari Reserve as part of the Department of Conservation’s ongoing recovery plan for the species. The one-and-a-half year old birds had never met each other, but the hope is that they will breed on Maungatautari to establish a population in the North Island. A helicopter collected the young bachelor Kina from Maud Island and then flew to Mana Island to collect his future life partner Kelly.
