I think that John Young's finding of the Night Parrot, while well meaning, will 
probably be more responsible for the demise of the species, than for the 
survival. It will may be better if he kept shtum. I know I would. Now that a 
location for the species is known, there will be all kinds of interference with 
the species, mainly with the best of intentions. Like most cryptic species, the 
Night Parrot will suffer from those good intentions.
