Thanks, Anne-Lise! We obtained the blood samples as part of the conservation management of kakapo by the Kakapo Recovery Programme of the NZ Dept of Conservation. We take blood samples from all individuals for DNA. In New Zealand DOC issues the permits for external researchers to collect samples from endangered species.
