Protecting the Wild: Parks and Wilderness, the Foundation for Conservation

We rated this book:


Protecting the Wild is a monument. Protecting the wild is protecting ourselves. It is a never-ending effort that challenges our nature. Here is a recipe for re-stabilizing our world. If the reader derives anything from this historic work, it is that insight that evades most of us, thrusting us into disregard. Nature seeks balance, which The Parks and Wilderness Foundation for Conservation delivers in this comprehensive document of the wild. The book is edited by three outstanding scholars: George Wuerthner, Eileen Crist, and Tom Butler. The book is well-documented with a list of important contributors.

Although the message is a little generic, it is comprehensive and plays a major role in conservation efforts. The book’s design is organized into three parts: Protecting the Wild, Rewilding Ourselves, and The Foundation for Conservation.

Island Press has developed into a significant voice in the natural chorus, an influential representative and advocate of advancing conservation of the natural world. It’s the kind of book that makes us reflect on what we are doing with our Earth. It takes a bold stand on what matters. Read it.
