Wildlife Heroes

For tens of thousands of years, humans relied on animals to sustain life: their skins kept us warm, their oils provided fuel.  But the 7-billion of us stomping the earth today? Our relationship with the creatures around us is vastly different.  Around the globe, species big and small remain under intense threat of extinction. A new book, ‘Wildlife Heroes’ tells the story of forty leading conservationists who are fighting behind the scenes to save these animals.

Jeff Flocken is the head of US policy for theInternational Fund for Animal Welfare. He co-authored ‘Wildlife Heroes’ with Julie Scardina.
