Reggie, I don't think you could have said it better. Let it die, but don't
you dare collect it and try to save it. This is true the world over. Then
there is the new World Bank idea, don't you dare ship anything out, it
is your cultural heritage. Countries like Colombia, are now restricted
to no exportation because someone says what is there is only yours. How
short sided when they are destroying it all and it won't be theirs or anyones
in the future. I often wonder if those who promulgate ideas have ever looked
into what is or is it all hot air to make it look good? I don't know, but
don't let anyone tell you that it is wrong to save a plant anyless than
it is right to save an animal or a person!
At some point, we will have to come to accept we are all on this Earth
together and we will all survive together or fall separate.... Always choices.....
Just had to add my two cents,
