Aprašymas

In the late nineteenth century, humans came at long last to a devastating realization: their rapidly industrializing and globalizing societies were driving scores of animal species to extinction. In Beloved Beasts, acclaimed science journalist Michelle Nijhuis traces the history of the movement to protect and conserve other forms of life. Nijhuis's account documents early battles to save charismatic species such as the American bison and bald eagle to today’s global effort to defend life on a larger scale.

She describes the vital role of scientists and activists such as Aldo Leopold and Rachel Carson; reveals the origins of vital organizations like the Audubon Society and the World Wildlife Fund; explores current efforts to protect species such as the whooping crane and black rhinoceros; and confronts the darker side of modern conservation, long shadowed by racism and colonialism. As the destruction of other species continues and climate change wreaks havoc on our world, Beloved Beasts charts the ways conservation is becoming a movement for the protection of all species, including our own.
