I’m not an expert in this area, but in contrast to our politicians I’m interested in our scientists knowledge.
Hypothetically, would it be possible to apply the same thoughts about favourable conservation status on e.g. Arctic fox, Bear, or Red fox as now is done with the Wolf here in Sweden?
That is, some 270 individuals should be sufficient to ensure a viable and healthy population. If not, what is it then that makes the Wolf so unique compared to other species?
I thought that the laws for genetics, natural mortality, possibility to cope with diseases etc. would be rather general when estimating favourable conservation status among different species.
