Dear Jaime, Rita and List,

    I am going to have to agree with Rita on this one. For the record, The
Galapagos islands were raped for hundreds of years before conservation
efforts were set in place to preserve the harshly depleted ecosystem there.
More than half of the giant tortoise species along with many birds and other
native species were wiped out by man's interference.
    If you want more information, try David Quemmin's "Song of the Dodo".
This is a beautifully written book on island decay and modern attempts at
conservation. Oh, and dinosaurs are cool.
