It’s that time of year again—Forest & Bird’s annual bird of the year competition is now open for votes (closes 5pm Sunday 10 November)!
This year you’re able to vote for your five preferred birds. Our first preference is always going to be the kea, but we’re also keen to support our bird friends such as the kakī and orange fronted parakeet who are also found in the Southern Alps.
The kea campaign this year involves many people and groups, including Will Douglas and Annika Werner (KCT) running the main campaign, and support from NZ IT company Catalyst, who are running a Twitter campaign with their sponsored bird Haututū.
Good luck to all of the birds for 2019!
