Rangers use technology to keep track of the remaining birds, record which parrots are mating and brooding behavior. All known kakapo have names too. Their data is transmitted by satellite to kakapo conservation headquarters. Talk about being watched! The hope is that the birds will increase to sufficient number that they can be left to their own devises in the wild. The intense conservation efforts include genome sequencing of every known kakapo, artificial insemination and supplementary feeding to increase productivity.
