Species have gone extinct just because of people who think taking just "one more" won't hurt because there are so many, originally. Corporate America is detrimental in many ways to the health of our reefs, but the mentality that anyone can take whatever they want just because there is enough at one point in time is the mentality that funds the detrimental corporate America. As X says, every little bit helps, or hurts in this case. And if people continue taking little bits, the end result is devastating. We are already seeing the effects of corporate America on the reefs; lets not start seeing the ones from individuals who form a collective force through collection of wildlife.
