Orokonui Ecosanctuary, 600 Blueskin Road, Waitati, Dunedin


All Ages

Sirocco the kākāpō will be at Orokonui Ecosanctuary in Dunedin during 9th to 29th of September 2018 (excluding the 22nd). This is his first public appearance since 2014 and he’s ready to meet his fans once more.

This is not Sirocco’s first rodeo. He first went on tour in 2011, when he stayed at Orokonui and then moved on to Zealandia in Wellington. In 2012, he was hosted at Maungatautari, (near Hamilton) and then he went back to Zealandia again in 2013 and 2015, and Orokonui in 2013 and 2014.

For the hosts, the chance to display Sirocco is a huge commitment. A lot of work and money goes into ensuring his health and well-being are maintained. That includes following strict rules about how Sirocco is housed, handled and fed. Regular health checks and a designated minder ensure that Sirocco remains as well cared for on tour as any celebrity.

The team at Orokonui know the drill and Sirocco’s wellbeing is their first priority.
There are a limited number of tour spots and it’s first in first served, so get in quick.

Tickets will be available on the Orokonui Ecosanctuary website (external site) from Wednesday15 August 2018 at noon.

If you’re not able to meet Sirocco, we encourage you to support him and his fellow kākāpō by heading to our Kākāpo Recovery page where you can learn more about this taonga species, the Kākāpo Recovery Team, sign up for newsletters and even symbolically adopt a kākāpo of your own.
