    No, of course there should not be a need, but unfortunately there is.

    Desperate people will do desperate things, and some with too much money will abuse that.

    welcome to capitalism

    In a perfect world, no. In a perfect world, there would be a dynamic equilibrium, keeping populations from declining precipitously Alas, the word is not perfect and many of our activities detrimentally affect the equilibrium we want. In most instances, we need to regulate the activities that cut back on the standing crop of wildlife. Hunting is a very minor portion; most of the problems come from our habitat modification. Houses for humans replace living space for  wildlife. Burning of fossil fuels and cement production change the climate. We need to examine each species and each ecosystem and decide on the best course of action. Conservation IS defined as  "wise use", after all, and we need to stop and think before acting.

    We forget that we live in a natural system with integral laws of connection which affect us all. We think that we are above all the other animals. We exploit and pollute and destroy forgetting that we are all in the same boat. 

    There is a story of two men in a boat and one starts drilling a hole underneath him. The other says 'Hey what do you think you're doing?' The first responds 'I'm drilling under me, not you.'  The second one replies 'Fool, we will both drown together.'

    We are in that situation now. Covid-19 has shown the world that Nature treats us all equally, as one species. We are being called upon to change our ways...to stop drilling holes in the boat.

    We need to start getting along despite our differences. We need to change or Nature will continue sending us viral and environmental blows.
