Noted. TY, Cal. When will people understand their reserves belong to the animals they are supposed to protect?

At the rate the forests are being logged there will come the day when none are left.

Gee, you cut down all the forests and then wonder why you have prolonged, extreme droughts; climate change; water shortages and all the other woes and tribulations.

Deforestation is a direct result of overpopulation. There are just too many of us for our planet to sustain.

Human overpopulation and human greed! Put them together and it's death for every living thing in that forest.
