I thought this interview really highlighted the pitfalls of single species based conservation efforts, rather than the ecosystem based approach. A lot of time was spend discussing the status of Koalas and whether or not they should be give a higher conservation status. These cute and fluffy mammals will always attract conservation dollars yet in my experience they are far more secure than many other animals who never get a cent spent on them.
