CITES has likely been taken over by animal rights nuts. We should probably get out while we still have rhinos and elephants left...

Sigh. Want to conserve anything? Make it profitable.

I'm of the opinion that pragmatism hasn't been seen in this sphere since at least when I was a child... even then I wondered why these bans were so stubbornly adhered to when, in effect, they DROVE demand for the very thing they were trying to protect.

Then again, I'm constantly surprised on a daily basis how few people actually understand even the basics of economics.

To whit: These guys are unwittingly following the "De Beers plan" to driving demand.
