The kakapo is a critically endangered species of large, flightless, nocturnal, ground-dwelling parrot of the super-family Strigopoidea endemic to New Zealand. It has finely blotched yellow-green plumage, a distinct facial disc of sensory, vibrissa-like feathers, a large grey beak, short legs, large feet, and wings and a tail of relatively short length.

The total known population is only 126 living individuals, as reported by the Kakapo Recovery programme, most of which have been given names.Because of Polynesian and European colonisation and the introduction of predators such as cats, rats, ferrets, and stoats, the kakapo was almost wiped out. Conservation efforts began in the 1890s, but they were not very successful until the implementation of the Kakapo Recovery plan in the 1980s. (x)

There are ways you can help save the kakapo population through donations, adoptions, voluteering, becoming a supporter, or buying merchadise. 

You can find more information on the endangered kakapo herehere, and here .

it should be known that this is the bird that tried to fuck David Attenborough

NO NO NO YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THIS IS A REALLY FAMOUS ANIMATION FILM TECHNIQUE DONE BY ONE INSANE STUDIO YEARS AND YEARS AGO IN GERMANY, ONLY A FEW FILMS, BECAUSE OF HOW HARD THEY WERE TO MAKE.
EACH AND EVERY FRAME OF THESE MOVIES ARE OIL PAINTINGS ON GLASS.

holy

i’ve actually had this idea before but i never knew there was a studio that actually did it

This is from the film ‘The Old Man and the Sea’, directed by Russian animator Aleksandr Petrov. It was animated at a studio in Canada, not Germany, the animation itself handled mainly by Aleksandr and his son Dmitri Petrov. Production began in 1997 and the film was released in 1999. Though paint-on-glass is a laborious technique with few talented animators working in the medium Aleksandr Petrov has created several films using the process. In fact his most recent film ‘My Love’ was released in 2006-7. So check his work out if you haven’t. The ‘living painting’ effect achieved is very unique and beautiful.

I adore this technique, we were taught it in University next to the smudge and smear and we were in love with the film that our tutor showe that was indeed ‘The Old Man and the Sea’.
I would highly recommend looking up the work.
