Kea Conservation Trust

We’re proud to support the KEA Conservation Trust by – and offering our guests the opportunity to donate toward this cause.

The Kea is our native alpine parrot, in fact, the only alpine parrot in the world – there are only a few thousand left putting them at risk of extinction. The Kea Trust aims to preserve and protect these unique birds that are regarded as one of New Zealand’s taonga (treasure).

Named by the Maori for the sound of its call, the Kea is endemic to the Southern Alps of New Zealand. These sociable and highly intelligent birds are well adapted to their harsh environment. Unfortunately, the traits that kea developed for survival, their curiosity and omnivorous appetite, have created conflict with humans over the last 150 years. Persecution and predation have sorely depleted numbers and, with only a few thousand birds remaining, the Kea is a nationally Endangered species.
