About this book

Wildlife conservation in Australia owes much to the pioneering ideas of a controversial mathematics professor whose attention-grabbing actions made him both loved and hated. His company fell from a great height, but its influence has been enormous. This is the story of that enterprise and the man who founded it. Stephen Davey worked alongside John Wamsley for many years and has compiled this memoir using taped conversations and archival material.
