1. Cultivating animals of which there is a demand for and shortage of in the marketplace reduces the strain on the wc population.

2. cb animals teaches about the wild animals, even in failures. if a good record is maintained it can help future efforts by anyone

3. even if the species goes extinct in the wild, if you have a cb specimen, it can be used to repopulate. (genetic bottlenecks will be overcome by technological advancements in genetic engineering)

4. if strict rigors are applied to husbandry techniques, even if these technological advancements don't happen (unlikely)you'll still have a live animal to extract enough genomes from it for a clone. also, reintroduction from traditional cb has been successful in the past. not highly successful, but it is possible.


JME, your answer seems to indicate you think that all monitors are in danger of extinction, or that you are in the camp where you don't believe CB is going to help conservation in any way. (I do not agree) I don't know which, because I don't know how bad it is for monitors everywhere. I would not have thought the savannah monitor was in danger of going extinct in the wild in africa, because they have so many cb here now. Someone on another forum was telling me v. beccari were being taken from the wild at a higher rate than the ecosystem could maintain so maybe that is the answer I am looking for.

what do you think?
