Summary: "With this book, Fraser does for rewilding what David Quammen did for island biogeography in his seminalThe Song of the Dodo. Fraser uses lucid prose, engaging stories and personal experience to make the ideas accessible and vital to a wide audience. This is no dreary rehearsal of past eco-errors and present concerns. Fraser takes us far beyond San Diego, straight into the lives of African elephants, Australian lizards and a Russian bear that intruded upon the Olympic Games, sitting on the sidewalk while languidly consuming a young girl's pet rabbit. 'We are so close,' Fraser says, and we require just a strong nudge in imagination and social engagement to make the rewilding dream real. With this lovely, necessary book, we step closer to that ideal." The Los Angeles Times "A thoughtful examination of rewilding and its discontents. . . an important book." The New York Times "This is a serious book, about a serious subject. . . a crisis more threatening than climate change." San Francisco Chronicle "A clarion call to save wildlife and the wilderness by 'rewilding.'" The Daily Beast "Readers will come away better informed about the complexity of the ecosystems around us and with an increased awareness of the many factors involved in maintaining natural order and balance. . . This truly is an essential read for conservationists, biologists, and anyone interested in the natural world." Library Journal, starred review "A fascinating, little-known story. . ." Associated Press "Makes a convincing case that [rewilding] represents the only realistic strategy for conserving our rapidly diminishing wildlife." Kirkus "Her story of grassroots activism paired with the scientific is environmentally inspirational." Publishers Weekly "Since I spend much of my time trying to head off environmental calamity, this fascinating and lyrical book came as a particularly welcome gift. It shows how scientists and activists are using imagination and research to build a realistic strategy for securing our green and noble heritage for the future. It will help you think big, which is the only way to think about these questions." Bill McKibben, author of EaarthandThe End of Nature "A riveting journal of the astonishing bio-impoverishment of our planet." Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., President of Waterkeeper Alliance and author ofCrimes Against Nature "Caroline Fraser'sRewilding the Worldis an exciting and wise exploration of a revolution that's reshaping the conservation movement. She's gone all over the world to bring us news from the front lines, and her account is one of essential hope: though it's no guarantee that we can save nature from collapse, she shows that we have a fighting chance. Fraser's account stirred me." Richard Preston, author ofThe Wild TreesandThe Hot Zone "Give them room to roam! Caroline Fraser's smart, passionate manifesto offers hope to the wild world. In an age of overwhelming loss, she shows us how to gain: more bears, more wolves, more biodiversity, more thriving e

ISBN: 9780312655419

ID: 947774

A gripping account of the environmental crusade to save the world's most endangered species and landscapes--the last best hope for preserving our natural home Scientists worldwide are warning of the looming extinction of thousands of species, from tigers and polar bears to rare flowers, birds, and insects. If the destruction continues, a third of all plants and animals could disappear by 2050--and with them earth's life-support ecosystems that provide our food, water, medicine, and natural defenses against climate change. Now Caroline Fraser offers the first definitive account of a visionary campaign to confront this crisis: rewilding. Breathtaking in scope and ambition, rewilding aims to save species by restoring habitats, reviving migration corridors, and brokering peace between people and predators. Traveling with wildlife biologists and conservationists, Fraser reports on the vast projects that are turning Europe's former Iron Curtain into a greenbelt, creating trans-frontier Peace Parks to renew elephant routes throughout Africa, and linking protected areas from the Yukon to Mexico and beyond. An inspiring story of scientific discovery and grassroots action, "Rewilding the World" offers hope for a richer, wilder future.
