Count the Kereru on in New Zealand

September 27, 2017

New Zealand bird enthusiasts are on the lookout for kererū as the Great Kererū Count is on this week.

The annual count began on Monday, and aims to provide a more accurate idea of numbers.

Kererū is the only bird species that helps disperse seeds of native canopy trees, like tawa and maitai.

However, because they are not an endangered species, data is not kept on their numbers.

The local branch of the World Wildlife Federation is asking people to keep an eye and ear out for any of the birds, and to log any sightings online.
