Kākāpō Stud Earrings

The kākāpō is a critically-endangered, forest-dwelling parrot endemic to New Zealand. They are incredibly unique and a treasured native, with ongoing conservation efforts helping to bring back the population from the edge of extinction. We've used two different green acrylics and lots of hand-painted etching to bring this design to life. We took our time to capture their big, fluffy bodies and cute faces in a design that is still distinctly BINKABU! These studs might be statement but they are light and easy to wear all day long 😊


More Details

The history of the kākāpō is a story of drama, despair and hope. Before humans arrived, kākāpō were abundant throughout New Zealand. Population numbers dropped swiftly due to hunting, introduced predators and land clearance. Conservation efforts began in 1894, but by the mid-1900s, kākāpō teetered on the edge of extinction. There are roughly only 200 kākāpō alive today.

Packaging that really tells a story—Learn more about these beautiful birds with our bespoke earring cards, carefully researched and designed by us for every single bird in our flock.

A portion of the profits from earrings sold in our New Zealand collection will be donated to the Kākāpō Recovery Programme.

✧ Due to the nature of individually handmade items, there may be small imperfections present. Though we have taken care to capture the true colours of each pair, colours may vary on different screens.

Wonderful Quality!

I work at the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland. We have a resident Kakapo in our queue line. As a bird owner, I totally had to get these earrings! I love the design. These are great quality and have a very simple backing. Not too heavy, not too light! Highly recommend.
