Wild Africa is in my blood. All life is sacred and interconnected. for the animals are fellow nations caught in the splendor and trevail of the earth.

I get an error message when I click on your link. But your link is the exact same one as I get when I go to the journal and then to the pdf of the article.

 

Here's the link to the article, on that page you can chose to see the full text in pdf or html, I hope that works: http://bioscience.ox...092.short?rss=1

 

The article highlights a very serious issue, even though it's published in a scientific journal, it's not technical and easy to follow, I recommend to read it!

Sorry about the link

 

the issues are very  important , it is written in a clear and easy to understand way so the message  will get out  and hopefully something will be done about it

 

avoiding technical writing means that  message can be und4rstood by the general public and policymakers
