Internet Gamers Save The Kakapo

Internet Gamers Save The Kakapo

The creators of a new online game – SmallWorlds.com – believe it will help save the beleaguered Kakapo parrot, endemic to New Zealand and perhaps the world’s rarest bird. Thought to be the oldest living bird on earth, the Kakapo parrot counts only 131 remaining specimens. This month players of SmallWorlds.com can buy a Sirocco Kakapo item which when worn, transforms players into virtual kakapo, with a donation based on sales being made to Kakapo Recovery. So far players have responded overwhelmingly to the fundraiser. SmallWorlds can be placed for free.
