About this book

Consuming Nature is a beautifully photographed book which depicts the devastation of nature in Africa as witnessed by some of the world's most experienced conservation experts. The book discusses the causes of the illegal wildlife trade, the people it directly affects, the threats to worldwide health and solutions for the future. Consuming Nature is a testimony to human ignorance and greed, and to awakening humane concern - a call for compassion and rapid action. It is honest, forthright, and demands attention. The photos are not always pleasant, some are tragically sad, others downright shocking. But they depict what is really happening - something that will only get worse, if we sit back and do nothing. - Jane Goodall, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and U.N. Messenger of Peace.
