When Swordfish Conservation Biologists Eat Swordfish

We are seeing species decline and disappear at ever
increasing rates. Environmental problems have
become so widespread and emergencies so common
that they are no longer perceived as drama. Few
news items have the power to grasp our attention
and elicit a sense of dismay.
Mahatma Gandhi once said, “You must be the
change you wish to see in the world.” If we cannot
manage to embody our teachings at least in part, it
may be unrealistic to expect that others will change
anything in their life, whether it is to stop eating
whale meat or to refrain from hunting endangered
wildlife for sport. This is not meant to be a recipe to
save the planet. When conservation biologists stop
ordering swordfish and opt for organic chicken or
vegetables, the world will not be substantially
