This is the story of Tamanui, the brave kokako of Taranaki, who helped save the kokako from extinction. The Taranaki forest is changing and kokako are finding it difficult to get food and protect their chicks. Rats and possums are raiding nests, taking chicks and eggs, and the kokako Tamanui has lost his brothers and sisters. In the quiet forest, he hears a kokako call, but flying towards it, he is caught in a net. Taken to Mount Bruce, he adapts to a new environment, raises chicks and becomes important in the survival of the kokako. Based on a true story, Tamanui is displayed at Puke Ariki, New Plymouth. The book is available in te reo Maori and English versions.
