Since the creation of the Kea Point wine label in 2008, Winesale.co.nz has sold 30,000 bottles with twenty cents from the sale of each bottle going to the Threatened Species Trust. The trust is administered by the Department of Conservation (DOC) and The Forest and Bird Society.
The desire to support the conservation of New Zealand’s native wildlife treasures inspired the creation of the label. Although specific numbers of Kea is hard to determine, it is estimated there are fewer than 5000 birds left in the wild.
The $6,000 raised for the trust has been earmarked for Kea research and conservation.
Winesale.co.nz intends to continue its association with the Threatened Species Trust and raising money for the trust through sales of the Kea Point wine range.
Kea Point is a landmark in the Mt Cook/Aorangi National Park.
