    the new pair of takahe arrived today. While I was looking for a link to post, I found some other articles about the female which was already at Zealandia who died just a month ago at 21 years of age (the video in kiang's link above only mentiones the male, saying he is 22 years old and will be moved to a quieter area of the sanctuary).
