L.Knight mentioned a truism, when he mentioned an
island which almost no-one is allowed to visit.
It strikes me that it would be possible to
put a few Kakapo on another island where birders and other naturalists who are
prepared to pay for the privilege (I'd gladly shell out $1000) could be taken to
view the bird under controlled conditions. This would be a quick way of
raising a lot of money for the Kakapo program.
