Good stuff. Nobody seems to mention the dramatic effect habitat distruction is having on wild popultions. People always point the finger to poaching and the pet trade. Could it be because we (Canada & U.S.) are responsible for it in some form or another? It seems to me to be that habitat distruction is the real issue when it come to threatening wild populations of any animal. Don't get me wrong, poaching isn't helping, but there's no way poachers can keep up with the pressures of industry.
