Kwis gets all controversial again

You may remember that last year Kwis Packham got in a bit of hot water for advocating that the Giant Panda should be left to go extinct as it was to lazy to save itself

Well he's at it again! He is now saying that donating money to tiger conservation charities is a waste of time.

In an interview with the Radio Times he said:

Tiger conservation is a multimillion-pound business that isn't working

If it were in the FTSE 100, it would have gone bankrupt. I'm not saying the conservation agencies don't have their hearts in the right place, but the results are disastrous.

I do rather dislike the fact that if you do as I do and openly criticise conservation, it's almost as if you're attacking something holy.

But if we're all giving a pound for the tiger, or whatever, I think we all have a right to think that money is being best spent, that's all. Why shouldn't I criticise if there is a criticism to be levelled? One would hope the vast majority of wildlife charities are doing good - but why shouldn't I ask? What's so sacred?

lol @ Kwis Packham. He is turning into a bit of a nincompoop.
