"Our scientists have analysed the risk that kea will eat toxic 1080 cereal baits. Published research (external site) shows that the kea that live close to areas where they can scrounge food from people are at much higher risk of being poisoned than kea in remote areas.
Kea in the remote backcountry, where most of our aerial 1080 predator control work is done, are at low risk of being poisoned and any deaths are easily offset by greater nesting success and more young birds in the population.
Feeding kea and allowing them to scavenge our food is not only bad for their health but puts them at greater risk of dying in our predator control operations."
"Kea nesting improves after 1080 treatment."
