    Things with protected status

    Pandas
    Some types of ape
    More to the point if something is so retarted, so fucking defunct and only able to cope in a very specific environment, is there any point in protection?
    Like lowland gorillas, for example?

    The Panda has no place in the food chain. It is not a predator, nor is it required to sustain others. It's only value lies in its rarity. Once it's gone that value will also cease. It has a sedentary lifestyle and despite it's classification as a bear and a carnivore, its diet consists of 99% bamboo. Totally bloody pointless.

    Exactly. Conservation efforts seem to have the Panda as their masthead, and they are indeed revered in rapacious cultures like China, whilst they happily buy up all the world's other endangered species as "medicines", ffs.
    And then there is the '"finning" of the world's shark populations. Doh.

    Maybe someone could run into a Panda's pen in some Chinese zoo and cut it's paws off, then throw it out of it's enclosure?
