“Of all the arguments considered in how to manage wildlife, perhaps the most important has to do with diversity - the variety of life about us. For full expression of its marvellous potentials, the human mind needs to grow in as varied an atmosphere as possible. Variety of all forms - not only biological, but cultural and social - is needed to stimulate our thinking and to sharpen our powers of imagination; it freshens our ability to find new solutions to old problems and leads to higher levels of creativity. Variety nurtures the mind and the spirit and is as vital to our well-being as the food we eat. In short it makes us more human.”

Biologist and conservationist
