What they say about my new book (so far):

Chris PackhamIf I were ‘king for a day’, Avery would be instantly installed as the benign dictator of conservation in the UK. If you love wildlife, read this, think about this, and act upon this.

Stephen MossA timely, brutally honest, yet inspiring account on what has gone wrong with wildlife conservation, and how we can put it right.

Ian NewtonMark Avery is uniquely qualified to write this immensely stimulating and thought-provoking book. Reflecting on his lifetime in conservation he discusses the successes and failures of the past, and draws important lessons for more effective conservation in the future.
