Just read the report and remain amazed that civil servants and especially the so called scientist portions of the civil service, use too many “maybe’s” or “appears to be” in what is suppose to be a report to development strategy and management direction for this great animal. This report, as is, is to inconclusive and as such any interest group can read the darn report and just about use it to their advantage?!?
I am all for protecting any animal species that is threatened or in decline but for the love of all that is great in this world, if you want a comment then give us conclusive evidence one way or the other!!!
So, in my opinion, fire the authors(s) and get someone that can to do the survey properly then ask for an opinion!!!
