[Coral-List] Reef Check's Declaration of Reef Rights

I think people may be over reacting, this is a fairly simple issue.  For 
example at the Reef Ball Foundation we have a large set of internal ethics 
for handling corals but at the end there is a small disclaimer that says, 
"except in the case of bona fide research being overseen by a principle 
investigator where scientific practices and principles shall dictate"

I don't think the intent of Reef Check's declarations is to take away 
scientific ability to study or work with corals.  If it is really a sticking 
point then perhaps a similar "disclaimer" could be added.
