Keas - New Zealand’s Witty Daredevils

Nature & Wildlife 43' 2015 HD

There are parrots that totally break the stereotypes: the keas in New Zealand just love snow and the cold, harsh mountain climate. To survive here, these mountain parrots have developed exceptional intelligence and resourcefulness. However, for quite some time now, the mountains have been attracting humans and other animals, too – and this has opened a new playground for the birds’ intellectual abilities. They explore and investigate, they burn with curiosity and never get easily ambushed. But despite their extraordinary wit, they are in danger – no one knows how long the species will manage to survive.
