Rewilding the World

Scientists warn us that half of the plants and animals on our planet may disappear by the end of the century. This would leave the earth unable to support human life. Fraser advocates an innovative way of combating this loss of species and our environment--rewilding. This ambitious approach to conservation attempts to save species by restoring their habitats, recreating animal migratory pathways, and teaching humans how to coexist with their animal neighbors. She describes how rewilding efforts are currently underway on nearly every continent and illustrates how the creation of animal sanctuaries has had measurable effect preserving some endangered species.
