Kea Survey Tool

The Kea Survey Tool was developed for the Department of Conservation to collect long-term data on the population of New Zealand's endemic kea (Nestor notabilis).

With a goal of long-term data collection in mind, a careful approach to information architecture and design was required.

Kea Database

The Kea Database is the technical part of a collaborative citizen-science initiative to both raise awareness of the major issues facing kea, and collect some data to help understand their behaviour.

Launched in mid-2017, the database enables searching individual kea based on their band combinations. Users can then log sightings of particular birds and also see sightings posted by others.
