From the devastation of forests to the collapse of fisheries, we are no strangers to bad news about the current state of the environment. However in his informed and invigorating new book, Wild Hope, Cambridge zoologist Andrew Balmford shows that environmental tragedy is still avoidable. Taking us on a tour of creative environmental projects around the world ranging from the flood plains of Assam to the plantations of Carolina, to Ely’s own Roswell Pits, Balmford shows time and again how ordinary people, working together with conservation specialists, can overcome seemingly insuperable problems. Join Andrew in the bookshop for an inspiring evening demonstrating the many ways in which we can all help to protect and nurture the natural world around us.
