The Unnatural History of the Kakapo

Caught some conservation films today. The first one was The Unnatural History of the Kakapo (no, it does not have the "humping the cameraman" scene from Last Chance).

Gorgeous looking birds that have suffered from being tasty to mammals. Their population is hovering on the edge of extinction, and only human intervention is keeping them alive. Although that does raise the question of dependence, in that will the Kakapo become dependent on the humans and be able to survive by themselves?

But the real question is: where can I get a toy one, particular if this will aid the Kakapo? (Possibly here, but it's not clear if the money goes further than admin costs.)
