gab, I believe I did get your point. Each individual donating to a worthy conservation cause is a good thing, I do not discourage that. My point is that a national organization of taxidermists partnering with a conservation organization could be good for both groups. A larger group has a bigger voice against stupid, feel good, make no sense laws that are proposed and enacted. Many different voices spouting out differing ideas make noise, that is ignored, but one loud, clear unified voice can still be ignored but at least it is heard. Taking care of the animals, which includes their habitat, that we derive our livelihood from, is taking care of us as taxidermists.
