Bird of the Year 2018, the beloved – and occasionally tipsy – kererū. Occasionally, they fill themselves up with a fair amount of fermented fruit and have been known to fall out of trees. They are one of the only New Zealand birds that eat the whole fruit, which means they scatter seeds wherever they fly.
Go Eco (Waikato Environment Centre) is a hub for climate and environmental activities in Waikato. Our vision is healthy environments supported by thriving communities. We provide community education, advocacy, inspiration for lighter living and operate a food rescue service and a Bike Hub in Kirikiriroa.
Kererū play a big role in helping our native trees, by sowing their seeds. We're looking forward to seeing more of them return to the city, with increased predator control and habitat restoration.
