I just think we need more communication on habitats which are in danger and make people understand that an story hides behind a fish.

One story of the life of your fish.
The interest in this story is already a big step forward.
It would be a great step forward.

An example, I shared on the forum of Phillipines: The simple act of sharing with them has shown them that endemic fish was in danger.

I mentioned on my forum: http://www.aqualifestyle-france.com/t7997-philippine-goby-les-gobies-des-philippines
and aquaristic club in this country started to become aware of fishes that are in danger.

If lobbies uses communication for destroy our passion, why not use the same tool against them.

Show them the truth about the habitats.

I think you need to get in touch with Heiko Bleher.

Thank you, but it's been several year that I speak with Heiko Bleher on my facebook.

https://www.facebook.com/tyrano34

looks at his response

Heiko Bleher : Laurent, you are doing a great job, I wish politicians would look at it ... But I think you, like me, are l only fighters, me in the field of vanishing aquatic habitats (like never before in history), and introductions of exotic species by politicians worldwide (also like never before, just caught a 1 m long Oreochromis niloticus in the Fly River in PNG, and hardly any other fish left in that river), and you in the internet.

Only this is not the struggle of one person but of an entire community.

Heiko Bleher shows us the biodiversity.
* And he warned us that the habitats are in great danger.

Now, it is up to us to respond and react, do not you think?

I think you are right to be concerned about these habitats. There are many people and organisations trying to do something about this such as the WWF for one who try to exert influence on governments and other entities. One idea could be to ask them how best you can help.

Raising awareness with fishkeepers is a good idea though, although many will already be aware of this type of problem.

I think that to assist them, it should longer speak of biotopes.
example, lakes Sulawesi who is really interested by this biotope.

Why do not put in place a collaboration and one sharing among aquarists worldwide.
One idea, you could create a section to talk about of the responsible aquaristic.

what do you think?

Hello everyone, I see that the subject has remained very calm.

This is a pity because the responsible aquarist movement has begun to develop in several countries. (Mexico, Costa Rica ... )

I have in the meantime created several groups to talk about the freshwater biotopes that are threatened.

And another group to talk about the responsible aquarist.

I think personally Fishkeeping is far more than people against, new or dedicated understand.If you notice i did not say the word learning!Because we are ever learning in life in everything we do and the person/people that think they know enough or like to stand out enough with accusations really do not know enough.To stand against is one thing but to stand out in defence is another.Unfortunately in life Majority does not make sense and following rules but dedication has moved Mountains.What i follow and those around me is PROPER,PRIOR,PLANNING,PREVENTS,PI*S,POOR,PERFOMANCE....If you can base everything you do and yourself like that you will find life a better place and everything around you and everything you do!
