Changing criteria to protect endangered species only is a move in the wrong direction. All reptile and amphibian species need more protection from human activity as populations are struggling.

We have seen a decline in all species for decades. If these changes go ahead, we could see species getting locally wiped out. Also a potential disease risk as people could sell and transport species.

We don’t want them all to become endangered in the first place. Prevention is the best cure
