I think if you treat herp societies like a species it could be true.
Over the past few weeks I've been hearing reports of declining participation of herp societies which in turn has led to some of them reaching a defunct status. We no longer really have a Staten Island herp society and one of the most reknown Societies nation wide the NY Herp Society which has been in exhistence for over 50 years now could be soon to follow. I'm just curious, does anyone know why we have reached such a state of apathy? I find it incredibly ironic that during a time when anti-herp legislations are springing up all over the country (world, look at Europe) we are not banning together by organizing ourselves via the unified beliefs and voices of our local societies. If this continues, the legal, captive, healthy herp will be one of the rarest of them all.
Is it just me that cares?
