A young kea has been released back into the wild in Fiordland after a successful surgery on his severely injured leg at @MasseyUni's Wildbase Hospital. Thanks to @RealJourneys, whose staff picked up the injured bird and brought it in to us at Te Anau.

Yesterday the healthy kea travelled from Palmerston North to Queenstown courtesy of @AirNZ. @MeridianEnergy’s boat delivered the kea to its final release site on Lake Manapouri. Thanks to everyone who helped get this kea home!
