PETCO is a nationwide, corporate chain in the business of selling, among other things, wildlife. The recent boycott of PETCO on Maui is in response to its sale of ocean reef fish, some of which are vital inhabitants of our near-shore waters. I have asked my clients not to buy supplies from PETCO, but rather to support local pet stores that do not engage in the aquarium trade. Reef fish belong on the reef. Wildlife should not be taken for human amusement; those creatures have their own lives to live in their own ecosystems. Boycott PETCO!
