Inspiring communities to protect kea, New Zealand's unique mountain parrot

Our Donors

Our donors are directly responsible for helping save our unique New Zealand mountain parrot. With their generous donations we are able to carry out vital work to help better understand kea and the threats impacting on them, as well as to encourage the wider national and international community to get on board and save this most charismatic parrot.

If you would like to donate funds to the Kea Conservation Trust to support the conservation and management of this charismatic parrot, check out the Help Kea page for ways in which you can help.
