well, i'll agree with you that it's depressing, and the word "hoarder" crept into my head more than once while watching it, wondering what kind of quality of life his collection had due to their sheer numbers. and as i tell myself any time i see a poorly-cared for tortoise in a pet store, craigslist, etc., or a live frog or turtle in a chinese grocery store, "you can't save them all." and in buying these animals, you support the business that in turn will only buy more of them. the opinions that some of his collegues expressed in the film, that he took on far too much, i agree with. his emotions clouded his judgement, perhaps, but his intentions were born from a kindness that too many people seem to lack. still, while difficult to watch at times, i did enjoy it. one of the ideas it seemed to convey is that it probably will be up to individuals to save some of these species, and i thought perhaps it would resonate with some of you.
