I think it is not all together the role of the AKA to decide this action. I
would prefer a united council of all associations to work together in
approaching local governments in areas of special concern.
This, unfortunately is easier said than done. We have been trying to get
such a council on conservation going but this takes a lot of time &
commitment to organise. I believe we have taken the first step & set it up
but there is still a long way to go before we are talking with one voice.
The IKCP have a website which was originally thought out by the AKA, the DKG
& the BKA but is open to anyone globally interested in killifish
>Natives would learn to care for them.
I think this open to question.
>In the meantime we can continue to do nothing.
No, we can continue breeding killies, that is not nothing.
>A herdman could destroy specie without even realizing.
I think this is taking it to the extreme. Killies have been found in small
pools of water formed from an elephants footprint comprising of a high
proportion of said animals urine so they are pretty tough.
Nature, perhaps should be allowed to take its course in many cases.
Killies will continue to evolve long after we are gone. Our work should be
directed towards keeping the sp. we have now going, & stopping deforestation
& habitat destruction.
