Congratulations Chris Filardi, you came you saw you conquered. There was even misinformation to the effect that the bird was released but it was indeed killed in the name of science. Yet another example of
trophy collection over well being of an endangered species. There was no census in that area before it was deemed feasible to "collect". There really should be checks against these pseudo-scientists visiting remote places and hoodwinking both people and wildlife
in the name of science.
Please write to the PM, and forest and tourism ministries of Solomon Island to protest this act.
