I do not see how this helps the Global populations of endangered species rebound. It seems to me it will only serve to allow for the animals to be bred for exploitation. There are no domestic elephants, tigers etc, there may be captive trained ones, but they are still wild. Sadly captive animals may in some cases represent the last hope for a species, in this case especially the animals deserve the full protection of the endangered species act. Fix the permitting issue, but keep the protections.
