ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Atkins diet has failed to coax the endangered kakapos to breed. Conservationists have fed kakapos with high protein supplements to boost their numbers, but they reported that it seems they have been focusing on the wrong nutrient. The conservationists add that the parrots only breed when they can feast on the rimu, a conifer that only bears fruit every three to four years.
