How does /an/ feel about species conservation? Does anyone have any local species which are at risk, and do you take any action towards their preservation?
The giant freshwater lobsters where I live are under threat partially from poaching but primarily from habitat destruction. I feel like I should maybe do something about it, particularly as right now the local forestry industry is on the brink of clear felling an area upstream of a significant population of the little bastards, and as far as I can tell the measures that are in place to protect them are essentially worthless.
Its a shame because the majority of their (fairly specific) habitat has already been destroyed, and despite being a so-called 'priority species' neither the local nor federal government seem to care to take any actual practical measures towards their protection.
So, have you guys protested or taken other actions for species conservation in the past? Was it worthwhile? Or perhaps you think those species which can't adapt to the changing environment should just go extinct. Let's talk about it.
Pic related, its a lobster, together with a human.
