The kea who found fame after they were caught on film moving road cones have been given their own gym.
A partnership between the Department of Conservation (DOC), Downers NZ, University of Canterbury and the Kea Conservation Trust has enabled a kea gym to be built near the Homer Tunnel in Fiordland National Park.
A kea gym offers the birds several objects they can play with or take apart to distract them from danger or causing damage.
DOC partnerships ranger Sue Streatfield said the idea to establish a gym at Homer Tunnel in Fiordland came after rangers were looking for a way to get kea away from the road.
On regular visits to Homer Tunnel, rangers would find kea wandering all over the road as traffic waited to go through the one-way tunnel to Milford Sound.
