To Hell With Ecology I Want My Job

This was a headline in a newspaper in Florida some years ago. And when we are truthful this is where most of us live.  ‘Conservation is all very fine … but’. This is where most of us live too.  And that is the sharp cutting edge of the battle line between jobs and the conservation of species. In the book Planet Dancing the chapter on ‘I will Kill the Last Parrot on Earth’ states this reality in blunt language.

Conservation must never be argued for in the absence of the needs of humans.
