Me too, and i've heard it used as an excuse to continue promoting the WC market, which is simply missing the point entirely.
The key word is certainly the one JM used, management. Captive populations should and could be managed much better. Done properly, through colaboration among hobbyists and applying a bit of sense, steps could be taken to try and secure the future of a large variety of caudate populations in captivity.
Unfortunately that's currently a tiny fraction of the total volume of breeding that occurs, which is not doing captive populations any favours.
