When a species doesn’t go extinct, when birds still migrate, where giraffes still run and lions still rule and elephants continue trumpeting to the sky—it’s because of superheroes like the seventy conservationists featured in Wild Lives (foreword by Carl Safina), and Saving Wild (foreword by Jane Goodall).
Wild Lives, Leading Conservationists on the Animals and Planet They Love, Foreword by Carl Safina
Luckily for all of us, there are human superheroes. When a species doesn’t go extinct, when birds still migrate, where giraffes still run and lions still rule and elephants continue trumpeting to the sky—it’s because of them.
You’re going to meet them in Wild Lives. (excerpt from the foreword by Carl Safina).
According to scientists, we are entering the sixth great mass extinction event. It’s easy to feel a sense of ecological despair, to lose hope, and to give up trying to make a difference.
In Saving Wild, fifty of the world’s leading conservationists, who have devoted their lives to save some of the most endangered species on earth, answer the question How do you stay inspired?
