The Invisible Ark is a simple book that presents a big idea. It argues for the increasing importance of captivity as a conservation measure for animals and plants today, an era identified as the sixth major extinction event in the history of life on Earth.
The book calls to attention the millions of people around the world whose efforts maintain thousands of species of life in self-sustaining, captive populations. The authors call these people The Invisible Ark.
The lnvisible Ark is not some invention created for this book. The Invisible Ark already exists, and this book emphasizes the importance of the Invisible Ark. Although its keepers are the largest conservation force in the world, they are mostly unrecognized, and they increasingly find themselvcs facing legislation that compromises their projects, businesses, and studies that have developed over decades.
lf you love the plants and animals of our world, if you keep and care for plants and animals, you probably are a member of the Invisible Ark, and you should read this book.
