The Nelson Mail reported that 16 more yellow-crowned parakeets were released into the Abel Tasman National Park this week.  Over the past two years a total of 38 kakariki have been released into the park as part of a breeding programme partnered by Project Janszoon and Department of Conservation.

Kakariki had disappeared from lowland forest.

Predator numbers are said to be low in the area, with seeding beech providing plenty of food for the birds.
