You know what really makes me angry about Australia and the way we manage our wildlife? Take a look at the guy who is the ONLY person allowed to take Weedy Seadragons from the wild. Pang Quong. His application is full of broken English, incorrect grammar, coloured neon text, it's an embarrassment to the standards and integrity of our government. His proposal seems to be all about him, talking about how great he is. A very unprofessional proposal that anyone could slap together. I guess he has been doing it for 18 years now(as he tells us all in his proposal) and thinks he is above us mere mortals. Quong is probably a multimillionaire by now. Victorian PQ Aquatics Fishery - application 2015 | Department of the Environment He takes a gravid male from the wild and keeps the hatched babies, which usually number about 60, and then releases the male back into the wild( personally I would have thought releasing a wild animal that had been exposed to captive conditions and possible diseases found in captive populations would be a big no no but what do I know). And you know what he sells them for? He sells them for $10,000.00 each. He is charging $10,000.00 for a juvenile sea dragon. Absolutely outrageous. How is this whole thing ethical? ONE layperson profiting from a free resource like this when the majority of people have to go out and get a real job. Absolute joke considering the high numbers of unemployed here. He justifies it by saying he needs to go out everyday and catch live food. Reality check anyone can grow live food these days. Would love to know how he came up with the figure of $10,000.00. Why does the government only let one guy have a monopoly on this species? It creates uncompetitive conditions which allows him to charge ridiculous amounts of money. Surely allowing a more competitive market would be better for everyone. The Australian government is run more like some feminist mafia than a democratic institution.
