Tropical deforestation. The collapse of fisheries. Unprecedented levels of species extinction. Faced with the plethora of gloom-and-doom headlines about the natural world, we might think that environmental disaster is inevitable. But is there any good news about the environment, Yes, there is, answers Andrew Balmford in "Wild Hope”, and he offers several powerful stories of successful conservation to prove it. This tragedy is still avoidable, and there are many reasons for hope if we find inspiration in stories of effective environmental recovery. "Wild Hope" is organized geographically, with each chapter taking readers to extraordinary places to meet conservation's heroes and foot soldiers--and to discover the new ideas they are generating about how to make conservation work on our hungry and crowded planet. A global tour of people and programs working for the planet, "Wild Hope" is an emboldening green journey.
