The DRAFT Strategic Plan for Kea Conservation describes the Kea Conservation Trust’s (KCT) direction for the conservation and management of kea in NZ. The strategy is made up of three strategic objectives;
- Population size, trends, dynamics and genetics are understood.
- The kea population is actively managed.
- Positive public perception and awareness of kea is increased.
The aim of the plan is to document current knowledge about kea (population status and threats), highlight knowledge gaps which need to be filled and to provide a detailed project list to address threats. The plan is not only to be used by the KCT but is a community document which will enable other individuals, communities and organisations passionate about kea, to join in on efforts to ensure the species survival.
The four documents as a whole seek to drive and coordinate kea conservation projects over the next 10 years, but their success will depend on the wider community working together in a unified manner.
Please note these documents are still in DRAFT form and are currently under consultation.
