Tickets for the Ark - Rebecca Nesbit
A popular science title about conservation. What should we conserve and why in this age of extinctions? Who should get tickets for the ark?
Are we wrong to love bees and hate wasps? Are native species more valuable than newcomers (aka invasives)? Should some animals be culled to protect others, and what do we want the 'natural world' to look like? There are many surprising answers in Rebecca Nesbit's lively, stimulating book, which sows the seeds of a debate we urgently need to have.
