Re: breeder award revision?
Just a comment : I was, at one time, and suppose I still am in favor of
an award, title, plaque, certificate or something like "Keeper of the
Species" wherein a hobbyist receives recognition for long-term
maintenance of a certain killie species. This would be an attempt to
encourage species preservation especially for rare or endangered species.
