It's hard enough to get wildlife and conservation on TV, let alone have enough time to show just how complicated it is.
Continuing with my theme of showing exactly what is sometimes involved in conservation - in an effort to achieve the best outcome for ecosystems and biodiversity - I had to share this video.
One interpretation of the term 'conservation', is to keep things the same as they are. This, I would argue, is precisely the last thing that we need to reach the lofty goal of a healthy and sustainable natural world.
Lots of people start out in conservation because, unsurprisingly, they like animals. Yet the more time you spend in conservation, the more you recognize that doing what is best for the natural world, often results in difficult decisions and tough actions.
I'm sometimes a tiny bit cynical when it comes to conservation projects in true paradise (beaches, blue skies etc..), especially when it comes to sea turtles. Everyone wants to work with sea turtles...
