Maybe the lady came across other sites that expoited bettas and she put you in the same crowd as them? Everyone on this site knows how much you love you fish. Being in the 8th grade says a lot too. At least you care about another living soul other than yourself.
The sad truth of breeding fish is that with some species the natural habitat may be gone/destroyed by man, invaded by released species that out compete them, and/or pollution...if not for hobbyist many of the species would be no longer and you would only have a picture to remember them...granted the Betta splendens is a man made fish and its natural habitat is our aquarium-but its wild cousin could one day be threatened like many other native species that can only be found in aquariums today and hopefully responsible breeders will continue their efforts in keeping them alive......
This is so true; due to development, pollution, etc. many natural habitats have been destroyed. Nowadays you can't find betta splendens or any type of wild bettas in the waters of the Java Island (I don't know about isolated forests - but I doubt it). Unless hobbyist breed them, bettas may become extinct like many of our less popular native fishes.
