It's all about the almighty $$$....
You'd think that since 98% of all Reptile Shows are WC venues, that the NATIONAL Reptile BREEDERS show would stand to be a bastion of Captive breeding excellence. A showcase for the hard efforts of Breeders. Didn't it start out that way ?
I guess Wayne H. would stand to lose too mucho buckos if he left out the WC stuff or is our Exotic Animal hobbies in general so wild caught oriented that it just doesn't matter.
I'm ok with the WC stuff, heck I even direct and recommend hobbyists go to certain importers, but wouldn't it be spectacular to have this one show that would be awesome as a media centerpiece of what breeders and conservation can do....but alas...it will NEVER be.
Florida fish and wildlife could give a rats ass about anything other than permit and license fees....a lot of good help there
