Today people are determined to help their numbers grow,
back to what they were before the invasion of this foe.

Kakapos are parrots and only come out at night. 

They have such tiny wings, but they’re not capable of flight.
They lived only in New Zealand and were never hurt,
by natives who only used their feathers to decorate their skirts.
Then Europeans arrived on boats that were filled with stow-a-way rats.
The rats gobbled up all the kakapos because they were  slow and fat.
