Book Description

23 Sep 2010 Converging World Series
The second book in The Converging World series, Media, Ecology and Conservation focuses on global connectivity and the role of new digital and traditional media in bringing people together to protect the world's endangered wildlife and conserve fragile and threatened habitats. New media offers opportunities for like-minded individuals, community groups, businesses and public organisations to learn and work cooperatively for the good of all species. One of the key themes of this book explores the important issue of how new information and communication technologies mediate the natural world, and our understanding of our place in it. By exploring the role of film, television, video, photography and the internet in animal conservation in the USA, India, Africa, Australia and the United Kingdom John Blewitt investigates the politics of media representation surrounding important controversies such as the trade in bushmeat, whaling and habitat destruction. The work and achievements of media/conservation activists are located within a cultural framework that simultaneously loves nature, reveres animals but too often ignores the uncomfortable realities of species extinction and animal cruelty.

'Everybody interested in the natural world and the power of visual imagery will find this book a thoroughly informative overview of the way today's image-makers reflect nature and affect our attitudes towards it. It covers a range of media - from movies and TV films to still photography - and contains the thought-provoking views of influential commentators working in this fascinating field.' --Rosamund Kidman Cox, former editor, BBC Wildlife Magazine.
