About this book

A revelatory exploration of climate change from the perspective of wild species and natural ecosystems – an homage to the miraculous, vibrant entity that is life on Earth.

The stories we usually tell ourselves about climate change tend to focus on the damage inflicted on human societies by big storms, severe droughts, and rising sea levels. But the most powerful impacts are being and will be felt by the natural world and its myriad species, which are already in the midst of the sixth great extinction. Rising temperatures are fracturing ecosystems that took millions of years to evolve, disrupting the life forms they sustain – and in many cases driving them towards extinction. The natural Eden that humanity inherited is quickly slipping away.

Although we can never really know what a creature thinks or feels, The End of Eden invites the reader to meet wild species on their own terms in a range of ecosystems that span the globe. Combining classic natural history, firsthand reportage, and insights from cutting-edge research, Adam Welz brings us close to creatures like moose in northern Maine, parrots in Puerto Rico, cheetahs in Namibia, and rare fish in Australia as they struggle to survive. The stories are intimate yet expansive and always dramatic.

An exquisitely written and deeply researched exploration of wild species reacting to climate breakdown, The End of Eden offers a radical new kind of environmental journalism that connects humans to nature in a more empathetic way than ever before and galvanizes us to act in defense of the natural world before it's too late.

Media reviews

"Climate change, Adam Welz shows, is already pushing many creatures toward oblivion, and its impacts are only going to grow. The End of Eden is at once an elegy and an exhortation – a plea to save what's left of the Earth's magnificent diversity."
– Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of The Sixth Extinction

"Eye-opening [...] A poignant elegy for creatures lost to climate change and a rigorous call to arms against further devastation."
Kirkus Reviews

"A beautifully rendered tour of a natural world on the brink."
Publisher's Weekly

"A book both celebratory and heartbreaking, Adam Welz revels in the marvels of life's diversity and delivers a devastating account of ecological crisis. He brings climate breakdown's effects on the more-than-human world to vivid life, revealing in the process the interconnectedness of all species."
– David George Haskell, author of Pulitzer Prize finalist Sounds Wild and Broken

"An eloquent, deeply informed account of the unfolding consequences of the climate crisis for all life on Earth."
– Michelle Nijhuis, author of Beloved Beasts: Fighting for Life in an Age of Extinction

"Adam Welz has thrown a wonderfully wide net over the natural world, from birds to corals to mammals, in Europe, North America and Australia, to portray the array of life at risk in a rapidly warming world. He evokes wonder, which may well be the last arrow we have in the quiver to convince us to change our course."
– Jim Robbins, New York Times correspondent and author of The Wonder of Birds
