Watch out, watch out. There are stoats about...
And they’re hungry for a kākāpō - a parrot so large that they can’t fly.

Your mission is to get the kākāpō to safety by navigating across New Zealand to Sanctuary Island. And hungry stoats are just one of the challenges that face you as you jump, dodge and slide through forests, shorelines and cities to reach Sanctuary Island.

Along the way, the kākāpō will ask you for your help in their real-world fight for survival.

You see, there are only around 200 kākāpōs left in the whole world. If you play ‘Kākāpō Run’, we hope you’ll agree that the world needs more kākāpō, so you can help by showing your support on social media. You can use either Twitter Facebook or Instagram to share or pledge.

And on behalf of all the kākāpō, Thank You for playing and helping with their survival.

Educational twist to an endless runner game. I feel guilty every time I let the Kakapo down.
