The battle to save an endangered native bird has gone up a notch, with conservationists launching a surveillance programme to monitor three female kaka in the Abel Tasman National Park.

The large native parrot was technically extinct in this region of the upper South Island before their release into the wild last month.

Now biodiversity rangers have the parrots under constant watch in our most popular national park, using radio transmitters to track them down deep in the forest.
