The Kaharoa kokako population is now the fourth largest in New Zealand. It is seen as an important source of birds for restoring kokako numbers in other protected areas as part of a national kokako recovery programme. Translocations involve moving surplus birds from protected areas into other protected areas. This is an important any of introducing genetic diversity to fragmented populations. Our Otanewainuku population of kokako was partially sourced from Kaharoa forest.
