Quote from: Xzen on October 10, 2017, 05:48:35 PMThere are many voices expressing these concerns, as popularity & demand for the humble toad rises exponentially & dramatically.Intention to fund the long term study of bufo alvarius & environment, for the sake of longevity & sustainablity, has been mentioned by numerous groups, however to date I am unaware of any significant official studies taking place. It is early days in the cultural movement of 5, & I pray we have the foresight to learn from past mistakes .. a clear example being the sometimes harmful impact we have had on the trade of ayahuasca & related plants, as well as the environment & culture that is entwined with this sacrament.Our impact on the toad & its environment remains unknown, & as such I implore caution. Milking, trade, consumption & captivity will all have effect. How significant this will be remains to be seen .. however we do know that amphibians are extremely sensitive & that a single disease spread from man's hand, in the wild, may seriously harm the population of a region. Do we choose to leave a legacy of compassion, intelligence & co-operation .. or as history shows, will we continue to stumble blindly .. moved by greed & self interests? Thank you for acting considerately & compassionately, gurudedicationananda.
