Tetral Industries are proud supporters of Kea conservation effort through the Kea Sightings Project. The Kea Sightings Project works closely with the Kea Conservation Trust, Arthur's Pass Wildlife Trust, and the Department of Conservation to run the Kea Database. Tetral first sponsored 'Mactrac' in 2017, pictured to the left. Mactrac was sighted as a fledgling, where Mark Brabyn banded and photographed the young bird. Tetral Industries recently affirmed their support for Kea conservation by sponsoring our second Kea 'Airflo'. Airflo is a Wanaka native, residing in Matukituki Valley.

Kea are a species of alpine parrot, endemic to the South Island of Aotearoa. They are colourful characters, most well-known for being cheeky companies to climbers but are a critical species for alpine flora seed dispersal. Unfortunately, these adorable avians are a threatened species, classified by DOC as Nationally Endangered, with the population estimated to be between 3000-7000. Kea are especially vulnerable to predation from rodents and cats who attack easily accessible nests that are dug into the ground.
