Editor reviews

Conservation of nature is even more complex than ever in our modern, globalized world, and this guide from renowned University of Oxford conservation scientists Paul Jepson and Richard Ladle provides a thorough introduction to this important topic. An appealing, energetic narration from screen and voice actress Miranda Nation brings brightness and optimism to Jepson and Ladle's concise, forward-thinking work, which offers a comprehensive overview that includes discussions of historical and modern conservation movements, bureaucratic issues, criticism, rebuttals, and conservation's future.

Summary

At a time of unparalleled environmental change, there has never been a greater need for new ways of defending nature. In this forward-thinking work, Paul Jepson and Richard Ladle cover all aspects of modern conservation to provide a fascinating look into how we’re fighting for the earth’s species and habitats, as well as details on where conservation is heading, and how we can all contribute. Because it will be far more than just a pity when we lose the polar bears, pandas, and parrots.
