A kākāriki bursts into view. These engaging parakeets fill the skies with flashes of green and their chattering laughter. They once were a common sight on the mainland, but their numbers plummeted with predation by introduced rats, stoats, and cats. In 2010, they were reintroduced to the Wellington region, into a sanctuary surrounded by a predator-proof fence where they can breed safely and fly freely.
The 50x50cm prints come on either fine-art paper or fine-art canvas. Both are shipped rolled. Allow additional time for printing of these larger pieces.
