About this book

As the biodiversity crisis deepens, Anna Wienhues sets out radical environmental thinking and action to respond to the threat of mass species extinction. The book conceptualises large-scale injustice endangering non-humans, and signposts new approaches to the conservation of a shared planet. Developing principles of distributive ecological justice, it builds towards a bold vision of just conservation that can inform the work of policymakers and activists. This is a timely, original and compelling investigation into ethics in the natural world during the Anthropocene, and a call for biocentric ecological justice before it is too late.

"A courageous and carefully crafted defence of the concept of ecological justice which places it at the centre of a viable environmentalist agenda."
– Alan Holland, Lancaster University

"Wienhues’ radical argument that wild living organisms of all species are owed distributive ecological justice makes a provocative, valuable and original contribution to current environmental debates."
– Clare Palmer, Texas A&M University

– Marcel Wissenburg, Radboud University Nijmegen
