About this book

For those who believe in conservation, this book will not make comfortable reading. It may challenge the reader throughout because it argues life just isn't as fragile as has been led to be believed. Life is about pragmatic survival in a dynamic world and after 30 years of research, the author has no doubt that Nature's culling policy is ruthless for a reason, and that human emotion is at best misplaced and often specifically detrimental.
