As John Stossel has suggested

the best way to prevent endangered species from going extinct is to take them off the endangered species list and let people own them. The reason we are overflowing with cats, dogs, and other common animals, is that people can own them.

I'd like to own a koala, and I'm sure many other people would, too, but the Australian government restricts ownership by special permit to wildlife caretakers and scientists. How stupid is that? The world would be awash in cuddly koalas if people could own them.
