January 2021: Kea

Kea (Nestor notabilis)

A new year has begun and with it, FaunaFocus will be featuring a new animal, the kea!

The kea is a highly intelligent and social alpine parrot endemic to New Zealand. As an opportunistic, generalist foraging omnivore, this bird will eat just about anything, but relies mostly on berries and shoots. This brightly colored avian is endangered due to introduced mammals, lead poisoning, and anthropogenic threats.


Create art inspired by the kea and share it in the FaunaFocus Discord Server or on social media with #faunafocus. Learn about more ways to get involved with FaunaFocus!
