About this book

This handbook on the ethical and theological underpinnings of biodiversity conservation is a tool to open a broader conversation on the ethical considerations related to protecting species, habitat, and ecosystems. Featuring essays from a distinguished group of ethicists, theologians, environmental advocates, and communications experts - Peter Bakken, Jane Elder, Peter Forbes, Dieter Hessel, Nancy J. Miaoulis, Bob Perschel, Daniel Swartz, and others - this handbook will help biodiversity spokespersons understand the ethical and religious frameworks in which biodiversity issues are discussed so that they can communicate more effectively with the public.

We cannot preserve biodiversity until we come to understand that, at its heart, this is not an economic, or a political, or a scientific challenge - it is a moral challenge, and this book is The tool we have needed to grapple with that understanding. - Carl Pope, national executive director of the Sierra Club"
