I've been following this discussion on the effectiveness of refugium and protected areas, and I must say, it's quite intriguing. I wanted to chime in and share my thoughts on the matter.
In my opinion, both refugiums and the ability to create a small protected area have their merits and limitations. Refugiums can serve as safe havens for endangered species, allowing them to recover and thrive. On the other hand, you must think about when the given species outgrows the given refugium by providing habitat for a wider range of species.
What do you all think? I'm curious to hear your perspectives on this topic.
