The value of dragonflies

As usual, true story. There could be a long explanation, but that would be long and boring. Let it suffice to say that I have a good deal of frustration with people who shown a wild orchid or rare moth say: “but what good is it?” In this instance my response wasn’t respectful, but it was from the heart. the value of dragonflies

    I am honored, but I will also advise you that couching the answer in a more respectful manner will better serve the causes of conservation and biodiversity preservation. Cheesing people off normally doesn’t help influence their thought. My response was off-the-cuff and without thought after an invited talk at a unit of the National Parks – the park staff did not like their park guests being abused. So, while the sentiment is shared, I know your response will be more nuanced.
