The real truth about the harsh realities of saving wildlife.,
This review is from: Myth and Reality in the Rain Forest: How Conservation Strategies Are Failing in West Africa (Paperback)
This is a must read for environmentalist, conservationists and everyone who donates money to the cause of saving endangered species. From Oates own experiences in Africa and Asia, Oates tells us how the myth of sustainable development is failing to protect species and parks. He informs us about that what is needed is a return to protecting nature for its own sake. It is a well written book that weaves personal history with the history of the conservation organizations that are telling us they are "saving life on earth." The reality is they are failing and they must change tactics and soon.
