This page will show photos and details of kea which have returned lead blood lead levels above 20ug/dL, and have been caught up to receive life saving veterinary treatment. Our aim is to raise $1,500 for each kea to help offset the cost of the medicines used to treat them. Sponsors names will be listed next to each kea and updates will be posted on their progress. Thank you!!
