Book Description
Endangered species. Dwindling habitats. A looming wave of mass extinctions. The headlines are depressing and alarming, and the global biodiversity crisis is all too real. From tigers and polar bears to primates and ocean fish, scientists warn that half of all plants and animals could disappear by the end of the century-and with them earth`s life-supporting ecosystems that provide our food, water, medicines, and natural defense against climate change. Around the world, biologists and environmental activists are fighting back, armed with innovative new methods and empowered by a visionary idea that is transforming conservation: rewilding. Breathtaking in scope and ambition, rewilding aims to save species by restoring habitats, reviving wildlife migration corridors, and helping human communities and their wild neighbors coexist and thrive side by side. Unfolding across six continents, Caroline Fraser`s report from the front lines is the first comprehensive account of the rewilding revolution. Part far-flung adventure, part scientific detective story, Fraser`s quest takes the reader from the High Rockies to the vast expanses of Africa, from the jungles of Costa Rica to the tiger sanctuaries of Nepal, from Europe`s former Iron Curtain-now the world`s longest "green belt" - to the wilds of Western Australia. A stirring story of scientific discovery and heroic crusaders, Rewilding the World offers hope for a richer, wilder future.
