Any parrot population found on an island - particularly if it is only on one island - is very susceptible to extinction. One bad hurricane, an epidemic of disease, a sudden loss of species-specific habitat, introduction of a predator not native to the area - or a combination of all of them - can decimate a population concentrated in only one spot.

Now obviously, you don't physically adopt a bird - but your donation goes toward helping the project continue.
There are different donation levels, and with each one, part of your "gift" includes a plush stuffed kakapo parrot.
