    Currently in the process of designing a bird zoo specifically aiming at keeping endangered species of bird ranging from vulnerable to extinct in the wild; tell me what you think of the inventory and whether I should add/remove anything :) remember it should be feasible so birds I could actually keep in a zoo (so eg not kakapo)!

    Why can't you keep Kakapo?

    Due to the tiny wild population, it would be a bad idea to bring kakapo into captivity.
    For there to be a high chance of breeding, you would need at least four kakapo (if I did want any in captivity I would have two males and three females), a spacious complex with around seven or eight enclosures total (on and offshow) a bountiful supply of rimu fruit to allow them to even breed in the first place, and the backing of a government notoriously against exporting their rare native species.

    Also, this list is mostly based off of what's in captivity in Europe anyway :)

    everywhere and nowhere
    The husbandry of kakapo would be a nightmare, their diet and complex breeding cycle makes it one of the least suitable parrots to keep in captivity. For parrot species I would consider the island species of the genus Psittacara (Hispanolian and Cuban conures). Also I would like to see Gouldian finches in such a collection. I would drop the Vietnamese pheasant as it is just a variation of the Edward's pheasant and not a separate taxon. I also miss the Mitchell's lorikeet as it is a taxon present in Europe but most likely it is extinct in the wild.
