Thanks Ian,

            Seeing your name appended assured me that it was worth looking
at.  (I signed.)   And added a comment along these lines: "It is sometimes
suggested that Australia should lift its ban on the export of common species
which are agricultural pests such as Sulphur-crested Cockatoos and Galahs.
This would be a serious mistake as it would only increase poaching pressure
on Australia's less common species".
