Ecology is the science of how and why we live and the natural world around us.
It has been around for thousands of years, from the earliest of human settlers in Africa to the current global warming crisis.
In its many forms, it’s defined by what happens to the Earth’s ecosystems as we grow and change, and how we manage them.
It is also, perhaps, most deeply entwined with how we think about ourselves, and our place in it.
And this book explores the ways that this is possible and how it’s been achieved through the work of many of our own conservators, from ecologists to gardeners and gardeners to conservationists.
The title, What Ecologists Can Do for You, tells the story of the most successful ecologist of all time, Dr. Robert Pollard, who developed a strategy for conserving species through a series of “citizen conservation” programs and then, as an academic, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Environmental Science and Technology.
It tells the stories of the people and organizations who have followed Pollard’s example.
The book is a must-read for any environmentalist or conservationist, and it’s worth checking out for anyone interested in what it means to be an environmentalist.
