In May 2014 Project Janszoon transferred 12 captive raised kākāriki to the Abel Tasman National Park from Lochmara Lodge in the Marlborough Sounds.
Two weeks later they were released into the wild. They are the first captive raised kākāriki to ever be released onto the New Zealand mainland.
This is their journey.
