The Great Kererū Count 2021 is the final year that it will happen in Aotearoa New Zealand. The count for this year happens from September 17 to 26. It started eight years ago.

Data collected from the last eight years from people participating in the Count will provide an understanding of the Kererū.

Everyone can participate whether inside a bubble or just out of it.

Kererū are a protected bird species in Aotearoa New Zealand and treasured.

They protect and keep native forests growing because they are the only way seeds of large native trees such as tawa, taraire, miro and hinau can be dispersed.

They are the only bird that can distribute large seeds to keep the forests developing and flourishing.

The project is led by Urban Wildlife Trust & Kererū Discovery together with partners Wellington City Council, Dunedin City Council/City Sanctuary, Nelson City Council and Victoria University of Wellington.
