Subject: [NHBirds] Why owls might suffer in a cashless society
There is a recent article on BBC Capital, *The strange reason owl theft may
be on the rise*, which suggests the the movement towards a cashless society
may be moving thieves towards selling protected species in order to get
cash. They cite as an example that last year in Sweden only 2% of all
transitions were made in cash and that there are countries where owning a
bird of prey is a status symbol. One example given is that an adult Great
Grey Owl can be sold for more than $112,000. Orchids are another protected
species that will bring back a lot of money.

I just thought some of you might find it interesting.
