Save the Kea, the world’s only mountain parrot, needs your help!

718 Signatures Goal: 50,000

New Zealand's National Pest Control Agencies will be SPREADING BY AIR 1080 POISON that will KILL OUR NATIVE KEA PARROTS!


They will be dropping the poison when our native Kea Parrot is very hungry as its food supply is very scarce in winter.


THERE WILL BE TWO AERIAL DROPS

The first time they will spread just flavoured cereal.

The second time, will contain deadly 1080 poison.


SIGN THIS PETITION TO HELP US STOP THE POISONING!

We will present this petition to the NZ Prime Minister John Key and members of parliment to make them take action.


IMPACT ON KEA

Kea will eat the cereal baits and die. They will also be poisoned if they drink from ponds and alpine tarns where the baits lie, or scavenge poisoned carcasses or eat the dying insects surrounding the poisonous baits.


No bird repellent will be used to avoid harm to our Native Kea Parrot, No repellent has been successful so far.


We need your help to save our Native Kea and to STOP New Zealand National Pest Control Agencies dumping 1080 poison in our environment.


Each year New Zealand's National Pest Control Agencies dump enough 1080 poison to kill 20 million people!


NO OTHER COUNTRY IN THE WORLD DOES THIS?

    I don't only sign this petition just save Kea but also save other native species here in New Zealand as well as saving the ecosystem.

    1080 is an inhumane and indiscriminate poison

    You have no right to go on killing our native birds and wild animals. If I treated my animals the way you kill them I would be jailed.

    They say it's to save the birds from preditors, but 60 years ago before 1080 there were rats, cats and stoats and millions of birds. Now there are rats, cats and stoats but very few native birds. If it hasn't worked in 60 years why on do they carry on?
