The first year of the project, funded by the previous 5 South Island DOC conservancy’s was completed successfully. This first year enabled development of a draft Strategic Plan for Kea Conservation Document as well as three aims documents and project plan. The second and third years seek to complete these documents with our project partners (DOC) and to initiate management plans which action each of the Strategic Plan aims. In addition to this, DOC is planning to hand over all resources related to kea research to add to the pool of equipment already purchased by the KCT and to commit to a low level of ongoing support (in-kind and funding). This is an extremely important project which will define and action the direction of kea conservation over the next 5-10 years. The project is a direct collaboration between the KCT and DOC and will aim to develop additional relationships nationally to ensure delivery of all stated projects.
