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'll be far more than just a pity when we lose the polar bears, pandas, and parrots.
