PostSubject: Scorpion Conservation Info???   2/7/2009, 8:10 pm

Does anyone know where I can find information on scorpion conservation concerns?

I would like info on

- how does the degradation and destruction of natural habitats affect populations

- scorpions being harvested from the wild for food or to be made into tourist trinkets.

- exploitation of scorpions(being used carelessly in movies and shows, etc).

Or any other related issues around how humans exploit and use scorpions and other conservation issues.

I highly doubt that there is any infomation on that stuff out there, and morelikely there isnt any programs for preserving scorpions. In some countries they are seen as pests and gets exterminated but spraying poison all over the place..

I had to write a paper on scorpion conservation last term. Very Happy

My best resource: http://www.vaejovidae.com

There's a bunch of good info on there, and he cites all his sources at the bottom of each page. Any academic library should have the journals those articles come from.

Yes, there really is a website for everything Cool But I am glad to see it, just because most people don't like scorpions does not mean they don't need conserving.
