We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It's not really true that we have to depend on randy turtles to repopulate the wild. We have every genetic code, safely stored, and ready to be brought back to life. Do you want three hundred endangered green parrots? We can have them for you in a month. We can grow any known species of fish or animal, in any quantity. So it's not really important to breed endangered animals.
It's much more important to make sure that they will have a place to live. We need to restore their habitat by removing people from large areas, and that won't be nice, or easy. But it has to be done. Africa should have thousands of Rhino's, and Giraffes, and Elephants, and everything. But that can only happen when the invading humans have been removed.
