This is a great loss. Unfortunately there are so many of us that we are a destructive force.

Noted - this mindless, unthinking destruction of forests in pursuit of the mighty dollar has to stop! I realise that it's easy for those in wealthy parts of the world to say, but some fore-thought and planning, and regulations could go a long way!
