Herps are a renewable resource. If managed properly they are probably alot more renewable than the materials that go into making say cameras and computers for one.

It's been said that for a population to remain stable each female need only produce 2 offspring her entire life, 1 male and 1 female, that reach reproductive age and breed. That's simplistic, populations go up and down for various reasons, all females might not reproduce, etc. but it does give some insight into the renewability of herp populations.

The key is "managed properly". That's more important than knee jerk reactions.
