Day 18 Bonus Activty

If I had the decision to choose how to save the Kakapo I would create a large invisible bullet proof bubble that was as large as Stewart Island.

Entrance inside the "Kakapo Bubble" is only approved by D.O.C (Department of Conservation) and payment of $1000.00 which would go toward the national conservation programme.

When you first enter the "Kakapo Bubble" you must spend 30 minutes washing your shoes and hands etc. to make sure that you don't bring anything into the "Bubble".

Once you have passed the "cleanliness test" you are allowed to walk freely around the Kakapo reserve but you are under constant supervision via a drone to make sure that you don't do anything wrong to endanger the species any further.

Hi Harrison,

That sounds like quite a massive solution.

There are lots of reserves in New Zealand that don't require a dome, but they do have pest-proof fences encasing them like a castle wall. These special fences keep rats, possums, and ferrets out, protecting the eggs from the imported species.

If you check out the below link, you'll find what we are currently doing. I also hear that cloning technology is becoming better and better, meaning that if a species does go extinct, then may be able to be revived - though it is probably super expensive so we should focus on saving and breeding what we have left.

Keep up the great work!

Actually...If I cloned myself that would be awesome. Think of all the stuff you could get up to / get away with!!!
