Anyone who's ever parked their car at a rest stop at Arthur's Pass or the Porter's Height's Ski area knows you are likely to be visited by the "clown of the mountains".. the Kea.
The endangered parrot has a huge sense of curiosity that can be annoying to visitors, costly for farmers and deadly for the Kea.
Now the Kea Conservation Trust is working on a Kea Repellant that can be sprayed on cars or even sheep to keep the mountain parrots away.
