Sirocco the Kakapo still in the news...

Sirocco the Kakapo is still doing his road show, fulfilling the road as species ambassador for New Zealand's Auckland Zoo.

"Sirocco is one very special kakapo, and something of a conservation superstar. He had to be hand-raised as a chick, and through this developed a preference for human rather than kakapo company. His love of people has seen him become an important advocate for his species," says DOC spokesperson Nic Vallance.
