Storyline

The first nest of the season is an exciting time for the scientists of the island. Mark has been to see it without Stephen and reports back saying it was the highlight of the trip. Under the roots of a tree, Lisa the kakapo sits on her nest and will be monitored by the researchers with remote cameras until the eggs hatch. The parrot appears to have no sense of danger with all the disturbance around her as the monitoring equipment is set up. Mark finds it poignantly sad that these birds are so trusting, given their precarious status. But, after the best season on record, the world population of kakapo parrots is now at 124 individuals.
