Habitat: This large, flightless, nocturnal parrot inhabits a range of vegetation throughout most of the North, South and Stewart Islands in New Zealand.
Why They Are Endangered: Over 50% of the adult birds on Stewart Island were killed each year by cats, according to a study by Clout and Merton. In addition, the species is known to have low egg fertility and exceedingly low natural reproductive rates. (Bird Life)
