Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Reprints over 30 essays and articles from the journal of Wild Earth, an organization of environmental activists and conservation biologists founded in 1991. They are presented in sections of wild science and strategy, wild thinking, and wild places and creatures. There is no index.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

For more than a decade, Wild Earth has dedicated itself to redefining the conservation movement. Where once the goal was to set aside parks and preserves, the emphasis now is on rewilding the land and connecting viable habitats across the continent. In light of these ideas, Wild Earths editor has collected the magazines most provocative articles and essays to date. Contributors include Lyanda Haupt on bird extinction in Hawaii; Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Gary Snyder on the moral shallowness of developers; Paul Martin and David Burney on the reintroduction of elephants to North America; and Jose Knighton on eco-porn, the promotion of environments as static objects.
