    A Queenstown skifield is celebrating the return of an endangered alpine parrot

    A Queenstown skifield is celebrating the return of an endangered alpine parrot


    Seven kea have been spotted at the Remarkables ski field over the past year, after a two-year predator control and habitat effort.

    Kea are rarely seen within the Queenstown Lakes District.

    Celebrating Conservation week - Remarkables' staff have named one male kea "Tahae" which means "thief" - a nod to the bird's tendencies to steal people's belongings.

    NZSki CEO, Paul Anderson, says they're passionate about enhancing habitat and increasing the local kea population.
