"... Scientists and conservationists spend much of their life 
frantically writing documents and recommendations, but little or 
nothing happens in the real world. Is paper, and then more paper, all 
that governments really want from us? When will the time for action 
come? Are we allowing ourselves to be lost in the illusion of doing 
conservation while in fact we are mostly just producing conservation 
tools that are rarely used? ..."

A recent Conservation Biology editorial expresses the frustration 
experienced by some of us, based on a personal experience with 
Mediterranean dolphins.
