The world's only Alpine Parrot, living in the mountains of the Southern Alps in NZ. They are nationally endangered and sadly there numbers are declining through introduced pest species, predation of nest and human impact! They are very intelligent, cheeky, playful and friendly birds who love destroying any rubber they find on tourists vehicles!
