The Kea – a Loony Tune
Blogger: Campaign Manager for the kea, Tiff Stewart
It’s hard to understand why anyone’d consider any of the other birds.
The kea have it all – attitude, physical prowess, grace, style, strength, stamina, curiosity, brains. And to top that off, they spend their lives playing! What more recommendation is there? A kea’s day is taken up with soaring over pristine snow-fields, executing dare-devil stunts above lofty mountain peaks, checking out the taste of the tyres of new 4WDs, and playing rough-house with one another.
And they’re great comedians. Everyone who’s spent time in the mountains has a kea story. It’s as if they show up when you’re tired just to give you a laugh, a flash of that glorious underwing, and grab a couple of your sammys.
Who wouldn’t want to end every day relaxing in an alpine meadow, with a handful of friends and family, and a glorious view of nature’s finest playground spread before them?
Kea really do exemplify the ultimate thrill-seekers life style. A vote for the kea is a vote for freeeeedom!
