About the talk

The Kākāpō is a nocturnal, flightless Parrot that lives in New Zealand. So few exist (148) that they are all individually named. In this talk I’ll show how I worked with scientists to bring complicated data and science into a data story that helps the public understand this incredible conservation initiative in a more intimate way. And, how through this partnership, the Kākāpō Recovery Organization are now using to Tableau to forecast and map the future conservation of one of the rarest birds on the planet.

Okay, so the way I could, so I went for a Tableau Software and Tableau public, so my job has always been creating a tableau public profile and I looked great visualizations about bugs and animals, that's just something I'm interested in my own time. And this story today, I wanted to talk to you about visiting an actual entire species, but this story is more about the collaboration. It's about a gene pool. I'm working together with scientists and the incredible conservation program that exists. So we're going to have to do a little bit of History.

So this bad. I didn't even know how to pronounce this name. So what's the best way to do anything in our fields? And that's what if we visualize. It's a KakaoTalk poll. The kakapo, it's a flightless nocturnal ground breathing parrot, the largest one in the world endemic to New Zealand. Tell, I didn't, even means I will pallets of these things Lyft to Bank. Street, don't know, we'll come to that in a minute. so, we talkin about a gene pool with talking about places, we talkin about a population, So New Zealand. That was

the kakapo licked. It was extends across the North Island. I'm the South Island's. The kind of tasty things easy to catch in the population, start to decrease the vet and then, of course, who came along the coast we did, as we always come along and we bring these predators two places and not just destroys things and so cats and rats and Stokes at this incredible effects. On the populations, that light list go what to do if you have a head, Douglas Adams talk about it and

I don't like chance to say it's wonderful, his quotes, the quotes on that license. Show me spread. This is where it was and places is important. In this respect with regards to the conservation program and what they do they translocate but they move them around, but it supposed to do to do with the place in Sims of the gene pool of the species, why these best particular from so long and decimated in the North Highlands just completely gone. Except for a tiny, little island will ever look in a minute.

Now, the Big Green up here is an area code for Woodland. I'm with a particular Island on that very, very remote and a lot of the princesses having, but it's very, very important. This place named Sophie old ones and what happened was that's why they are now. There are three islands now, this is my north of England. Mallory and I do apologize to anybody out of it that I can pronounce that but this is true. But what's important here is those islands. And the gene pool is only three places that allow Predator free because of this comes fashion program, trans locating them. That's how to move these

birds away, just to save them just to even just to save them just to make the species existence of. I've never mind the gene pool itself. Tell me some history Creek, Richard Henry 1994. He was the first person that really started too late to come to Vacation program. It has an effort to relook at several hundred of the birds to a predator free resolution resolution Island in fiordland very important. Richard Henry, remember that name and fiordland very important for the gene pool in the future, in the mid 1949 19 to

1973 another. So long. Of time, New Leaf, all New Zealand, Wildlife, service, 60 Expedition that Legend, not X, watch me, find the kakapo. I'm focusing mainly on Phil Evans and the cult 6, but they were all males and they were just like well what we going to do about that six males, that's always found in not time 1970 for 2018 mopeds. No mail. Still off all male. So 1970 for all males 1977 on Stuart Island that was the Green Island of the bottom of the man, a break through a large

population, was actually found on this island by 170 birds and then in 1980, they actually found some female. So he'll probably need to explain the importance of breeding pact with the foundation for the Future come to Vacation program at this bud. so this to Island the fiordland birds, these birds requested the foundables Then what happened tonight? To 297 Island, Sanctuary started translocate neighbors, moving them to predator-free Island. Eradicated eradicating, the wraps excetra, some of the Rocks, even swim across to one Island. At one point, just ate all the

bugs and their eggs in the chicks. And you just think that place is why I'm across the one but the older ones left now. That's a small gene pool very, very small thought. We're going to have to do something about this. I didn't 1995-1996 the organisation and I've been working for working with myself and some collaborators have been volunteering their time on this, on the picture on the right that's disrespect her. She's the manager of the whole program. Some bloke in the middle

of that. So David, I'm on the right is to Andrew Digby who's the lead scientist for the cup of recovery program. Next important thing, the kakapo 125 projects that was his Genome of all 225 living birds at that particular time in 2018 sequins for every member of an entire species. That's another thing in itself but very important for the future. If it comes to vacation to the beds, Who knows what this will hold in the future. So this is why we're out to the moment. I looked at the thing they did with one pixel 4 species. That's what it is

like to talk to Paul in 2019. so, the first real date to the house of population was in 1977, Straight through to the present day, that's the population Trend. It's probably very unclear up to the, to apologize for my flies on this important important on the big screen and projector and he's going to kill me for this light around anyway, 1970, 767 Birds. 1995 in Route 251. That's when they had to really start working on the program and conservation. Translocation imagine that gene pool 51 Birds. 148. That is all. There is left

in 2018 is still such a small number is still such a small gene pool. So I got my apologies for this. This thing this is about station for an entire species with a list chocolate, in my head started with a list, so, Wikipedia list of the list of Tucker post, I couldn't believe it. I just couldn't understand that that was number 148. We know the females if they're all individually named leave me know. When the heist they know the mother they know the father and the names of wonderful things, the name. The people is

helps with the conservation. So Richard Henry is that one of the beds, it's very important Back to the Future and the Beautiful name is Mallory names and there's one that I sit around a chick on the phone, call. Sandra nice one day, maybe it'll be a Johnny Walker. Yeah, I should have said that should I? I know how old they are when they look up nails and then went for the tree and that's why the collaboration came in. So this gentleman hello Chris my dear dear friend, Chris demartini Directions to the Visa

and he helped out in his own time, is all stovetop, logs and master. So if our community, I reached out to him, he has this amazing to walk on them. Family trees in in top life, but it was next to that which we want me to cry radio tree in the moment, but thanks to him. So I'm pretty good friends. This is about or two ago and we can just threw this year in New Orleans at the conference. So there's a picture of me and him smiling that he's the brains out of the beauty behind this really. The smiley face is so nice. Chris is also just an extension API. Top

loaf all these radio trees which basically just going to cook have so much of the hard work in maps with people to Greatness things is going to be very very cool. And expanded with a combat collaboration. So I was Chi-Chi, we traded this. Visualization point was to create something for us to show people something I was, so she can switch on switch, I always am. Anyway, people, all sorts of things, I don't care if you do ask you, don't get it. This is up to Andrew, take me now. He's a astrophysicist degree or PhD and then I don't know how

about kiwis the bugs, the kiwi and then ended up doing the kakapo. I reached out to him and say, wow, the mall with it. And can we and the coal sort of communication and probably talk to him more than I have them? My mother. And I cannot underestimate the importance of speaking. To The Experts finding out what's going on? I'm asking questions, questions, Clarity Clarity. I need to know what's going on with this bird. Does that mean, what does this mean? How would you pronounce stuff in

Maori? And what a wonderful organization they are. It's not just Andrew, so David Reyes, the manager of this whole team who helped out and what station will help defend the Republic of reprogram. So we go to the realization itself. Probably not going to apologize. We talkin about filing the birds. Now, this radial trailer for the founder birds in the middle of the cabinet lights are online, but in the middle areas of Ring of the sound of birds and virtually all those down to visit from one particular Island. But there's one

down here, which is Richard Henry named after that amazing conservationist. Now he is not particular, where's the rest of the best route to get to island? The genetic diversity from that one bird. Whose exactly. Now deceased is so important. So his offspring for another one, two, three, four, five, six best so important to the future of the species. Do the beds. This is what you say on the radio trailer if you could say it for play. Sorry, but you can say,

you know how many offspring the path. We have the size relates to the number of Offspring. The have been with the added extra layers of day to intelligence with regards to the islands, which islands of the birds stone is so important to translate translocate, the move them around. If it has been so successful. Keep it in the same place that you can pull. She's going to get watered down all the time. Enter training. This was something they really wanted to say, it is a bit weird. It's a weird way of doing it from the found the bird point of view, but it's probably not

genetic origin. Why it's important? It's not a normal way of looking at population. Pyramid Dollar Tree, if the results of way that if we push you onto the females as well, you can see who interacted with him with better. I mean, does it look like to? But basically, I think the brother in a system, a of them something together, but it's all about that, make you see that that wasn't so apparent in a list of day. So it wasn't my parents, the same use this in it, it's going to be published next

week. I think, and I send batteries on that web page and in the, on the Wikipedia page for population, pyramids for an entire species, don't know how old they are. And that's why the Genome Project. As well. Hopefully, they'll find this out. Don't know how long they can live for the oldest known but it's 37 years old. That was discovered in 1975 and something like that you know the discovery dates of some of them and all the rest of them but it's important when you looking at this so we can pick an island and then we know what the population pyramid looks

like. We know how many males and females are on that. We know how old they are. We know where the intelligence has been nauseated with extra with the kakapo recovery program. So something I loved spending my time doing the genome information is also going to help out with traits, positive traits negative traits disease with small gene pool. You're going to get in breathing. You're going to get disease from problems that. They're already out problems. So it's even more important to know where the birds were hatched where they were spreading Translate. I am moving

out to different Islands. So you're the power of it was ready, just to say how amazingly brilliant the organization of into world without opening to working with data. They're incredibly science. Dates are in technology heavy they use all the time helping to come service species. They use it to monitor this particular tree removed tree. I think that's correct. So, proud of what we do is great fruits. And when every two or three years, it has this incredible mask and

back for this year, 2018 is a Mustang year, and that's probably going to be the case is going to be a really good brand of these, but it could be a really good year for the 2019 transmit to remind me to ring Technologies. They do it would be fast tracks. All the time. Where are the interacting with each other helps with with grass, mating nesting Behavior disease? Nutrition Lagos. And before also monitoring vitamin D, the way of things about fruit on the tree is a vitamin D Superfruit. But the

weird thing is is that a lot of deficient in vitamin D. They don't know why I still trying to work. That is so much science, so much technology. They use it to great effect. And so did, you know, when you can go on it and explore it and, you know, the usual sort of thing. It did kind of like zooms into why isn't this? Is one of those horrible things that makes you dizzy again but going into it and the photography and the connection between Daytona and understanding and telling the book the bed story and actually

seeing, you know, the actual environment that this bird is in. And the people working on the ground. It sucks. It's a really wonderful story and why you so selfish lies the day to the Google actually, donate a lot of money to the recovery program. Oh and by the way, you can go on to the kakapo recovery program and donate. So if you do please thank you. I'm so getting involved with this thing and so many questions and asking questions communication to and fro with Dyson just helping. I was just been an amazing experience for me.

So, what's to leave your little bit with this? Douglas Adams quote, for the last chance to say? So, if the cap off is a bird out of time, if you look one in its large, round green tea Brown face, that has a look of serenely innocent in comprehension. That makes you want to hook it and tell her that. Everything will be all right, but you know that it probably will not be About quote was actually doing a little while about when the last chance to say, was done. When the population numbers were really low down by things with the genetic, the Genome Project back

Tuesday to analysis back to Science and Technology. I think, you know, that's, I think he's probably going to be wrong and then to be pretty well and so is the kakapo recovery team? That's why they are lost. The whole team is looking after these hundred Forty-Eight busy. Just take that absolutely amazing. Anybody ever seen this gift for main happy dancing bird right now. Anybody know, the true reason why this both so happy people use, I quit In-N-Out in total slot channels in top loader,

tweeting. This little bird that all the time. Sometimes it's like a rainbow color. This little happy. I still don't think they know what actually Wyatt's happy. So if you go to YouTube and search for Stephen Fry and kakapo, you will actually find out down there in that bolts. The reason why that boat is so happy. What's with this paraphernalia going to show it but it's 2 minutes longer to probably over run. Anyway, so very much.
