A kakapo for all seasons

I gather Stephen Fry is irresistible to the rare giant kakapo. That second link leads to an environmentally themed documentary on the subject (of kakapos, humping Stephen Fry's leg is another documentary). They are attractive beasts (again, kakapo) though I gather they a bit bit pungent (by contrast to Fry, who I expect smells of veviter and clary sage).

Though I am struck by a civilization prepared to spend millions to defend a flightless parrot but hardly able to lift a quivering finger of protest against the men who want to hack off our hands. I am funny that way.
