Wild Lives, Leading Conservationists on the Animals and Planet They Love Foreword by Carl Safina 

Skyhorse Publishers, release date: April 18, 2017

Wild Lives, the Book by Lori Robinson

Luckily for all of us, there are human superheroes. More than you know. More than you might think. More than you’d guess. And when a species doesn’t go extinct, when birds still migrate, where giraffes still run and lions still rule and elephants continue trumpeting to the sky—it’s because of them.

It’s because of them that many whales once near extinction are now common again in some parts of the ocean, and falcons are back and eagles soar in greater numbers and wolves again roam where they were missing for a hundred years. Only a super human could do that. And they have. That’s what they do, and they’re doing it at this very moment.

So get ready. You’re going to meet them in Wild Lives. (excerpt from the foreword by Carl Safina).

 

 

Saving Wild, Inspiration From 50 Leading Conservationists, Foreword by Jane GoodallSavingWild: the book

According to scientists, we are entering the sixth great mass extinction event. It’s easy to feel a sense of ecological despair, to lose hope, and to give up trying to make a difference.

Lori Robinson sought out fifty of the world’s leading conservationists, men and women who have devoted their lives to saving some of the most endangered species and the most threatened areas on earth. To each, she posed the question: How do you stay inspired? This book is the result.

In the foreword, Jane Goodall explains she finds hope in the indomitable human spirit “embodied in the people who tackle seemingly impossible problems, and refuse to give up, and who so often succeed — like the inspirational people in this book.”
