    I wish we didn't need to wait until a population is in crisis to start thinking about protection. Easier to prevent a species from collapsing, than to bring one back from the brink. Scientists believe this population to be a distinct subspecies in the very least, and a 90% drop in numbers is absolutely cause for immediate action..! :grad:
