Hi Daniel and John
Somewhere out there, there are natives with Monitor skins on and a belly full of Monitor meat, while collecting Monitors for the pet, leather and exoctic meat trade.

Monitor meat and skins to the natives have been staples for hundreds of years (probably longer), to me not a problem.

Collecting meat and skins for wealthy non-natives and for the pet trade is a big problem, especially for some of the small island species.

Just my 2 cents.
Mike
