Editorial Reviews


"...the book is valuable for its excellent presentation of the transnational and interdependent nature of biodiversity protection, the creative framework for looking at NGOs, and the wealth of information about an underresearched, yet crucially important, topic."--Choice

"Informative and enlightening... A must read for anyone who cares about the environment and seeks a better understanding of what can be done." --OASis

"Building the Next Ark is a valuable resource for anyone working with or in an NGO. However, it may be even more valuable for someone without a political or science or economics background. The book is readable and enjoyable. Just as the NASA photo of Earth seen from space shifted our perspective, this book offers a global perspective of the work of NGOs, shifting our vision of them dramatically. Most importantly, it offered a 'rainbow of hope' that NGOs proved ways to connect, collaborate, and to rise above the petty nation-state politics, promoting participatory democracy and protecting biodiversity in the process."--North American Association for Environmental Education

Named a Cornell Distinguished Faculty (2007-2010) and Arthur Vining Davis Fellow (2013-2014) at Rollins, Gunter served in 2007 as a U.S. State Department distinguished Fulbright Scholar in the Slovak Republic.

His current book project is Tales of an Ecotourist: What Travel to Wild Places Teaches Us About Climate Change. Crossing the far corners of the globe, this work showcases travel to wild places, from the hot and humid Amazon jungle to the frozen but dry Antarctic, as a simple yet spellbinding lens to better understand the complex issue of climate change, fleshing out a much-needed personal context to perhaps society's greatest threat of all.
