This bobblehead is the first to feature the pūteketeke bird. Also known as the Australasian crested grebe, the bird received considerable attention in New Zealand’s Bird of the Century competition thanks to John Oliver. The “Last Week Tonight” host put together an aggressive global campaign to promote the endangered Australasian crested grebe, also known by its Maori name of pūteketeke, for New Zealand’s annual Bird of the Year contest. On November 14, 2023, the pūteketeke was announced as the Bird of the Century.
