Call Of The Kokako

Jeff Hudson

"Call of the Kokako is a journey of discovery into what makes the kokako ‘tick' in order to save the species. This journey and work resulted in the restoration of the largest population of kokako in New Zealand with the help and dedication of many down to earth conservationists. Jeff Hudson spent 20 years helping to save the kokako from extinction. He was a passionate, multi-talented man who made an enormous impression on all those lucky enough to work and socialize with him."
