    Cuttlefish conservations

    Interesting...It is good to hear stories like this about conservation of animals that are not yet endangered:smile: . Though it may not be as appealing, to most, as protecting a marine mammal hunting ground, incidents like this should drive home the fact that it is much easier to protect a species before it is on the brink of extinction. I will have to keep my ears open for more news on the subject.
