How cool would it be to name a New Zealand native bird?
Bidding on this auction gives you that chance!

Russell and May Evans run Bush Haven on their Otatara property near Invercargill, and rescue native birds.
In 2014, after attention from the media, the couple were lucky enough to have Fonterra build them an aviary specifically for breeding Kaka.
Named Casey and Hannah, the pair instantly fell in love, and weeks after they began living together, Hannah laid four eggs.
While only one of those eggs hatched, Hannah and Casey have since had two more sets of chicks - you are bidding on the right to name one from the third clutch.
The four chicks hatched in September 2015, and will soon go to new homes.

All the money received from this auction will go towards the care of Hannah and Casey and their future babies - some of which are already on the way!

THIS AUCTION is for the right to name Blue (tag, in the pictures), who May and Russell say is the most acrobatic of the chicks! He will go to Orokonui Ecosanctuary near Dunedin.

YOU WILL RECEIVE an 8x10 colour photo of 'your' bird, a DVD including about 25 minutes of video of your chick from hatching until it was moved into a separate aviary, and of course the right to give him a name!

May and Russell also plan to hold a naming afternoon at Bush Haven in Otatara prior to the birds being sent to their new homes at a date and time to be confirmed.

It is believed there are fewer than 5,000 Kaka, making them less common than the Kiwi.
