The world’s only mountain parrot, the Kea, is trying to avoid people a new study has found.

A University of Otago study has found DNA evidence to show that Kea are not alpine specialists and only go to these areas to get away from human disturbance.

As part of the study, the histories of both kea and kākā birds were reconstructed to assess their responses to various changes.

This gave the researchers the chance to examine times when Kea populations rose and fell.

It is hoped that the research will help ensure Kea growth during any future climate changes.
