Given this is a country with serious other issues to deal with, it has to be said the article does offer quite considerable positives too...

Just two extracts...

"However, the story surrounding the hunting of flamingos sparked wide controversy in the country, prompting people to take to the streets in Maysan governorate on Dec. 28, 2016, calling to stop illegal hunting practices. The governor of Maysan announced a series of strict measures against hunters involved in illegal hunting activities. In the same vein, on Dec. 29, dozens of protesters demonstrated in Nasiriyah, 225 miles southeast of Baghdad, calling for a ban on poaching in the marshes."

"Furat al-Tamimi, a parliamentarian and the chairman of the parliamentary Committee on Agriculture, told Al-Monitor, “It has become imperative to prevent illegal hunting by applying the laws that have yet to be implemented by security apparatuses and local governments, which led to chaotic and random illegal hunting activities.”
