Product Description

Review

'Fascinating.' From the Foreword by the Earl of Cranbrook, President, Fauna & Flora International 'An excellent and, often, amusing read.' IUCN 'This historic account is interesting for anyone working in conservation.' Gorilla Journal 'Conservation in the 21st century needs to be different and this book is a good indicator of why.' Bulletin of British Ecological Society 'Determinedly factual, and full of detail, with many interesting examples and case studies... This book is a major contribution towards opening conservationists eyes to another world of historical and cultural understanding.' Nature 'It vividly portrays conservation's emergence from big game hunting, the battles for the establishments of national parks, the global importance of species conservation and debates over the sustainable use of, and trade in, wildlife.' Bois and Forets des Tropiques, 2004.
