Hotspots ScreenshotHotspots, the Movie – a sobering, yet up-beat view from the frontlines of conservation biology: the trench warfare, the subtle policy decisions, the slippery slopes, the unknown dimensions, and the very real creatures whose lives hang in the balance of human behavior and choices. Shot with multiple teams on numerous continents, HOTSPOTS reveals species never seen before, or filmed for the first time; and many of the most endangered mammals, birds, and invertebrates in the world. Three years in the making, HOTSPOTS is an uplifting, emotional experience. The film provides reasonable, grounded solutions, hope, and inspiration at a time when the planet is in turmoil, and the politics, rancor and uncertainty embedding environmental debates never more acutely felt.

Sanctuary, the BookSanctuary, the Book – Paying tribute to those safe havens where life can flourish in peace, this handsome volume introduces us to 24 nature and wildlife sanctuaries in 20 countries around the world. The sanctuary movement combines the principles of conservation biology with an interest in protecting individual members of each species, whether plant, animal, or human. The authors traveled from deserts to rain forests, from mountains to seashores, and from farmlands to urban centers, and they devote a chapter to each location, revealing that particular sanctuary’s unique focus. The photography is superb, but the overall result is much more than a collection of pretty pictures. The accompanying essays provide a bit of history and a glimpse into the personalities involved in each sanctuary’s creation. The book also serves as a valuable cultural resource, as it takes a look at the cultures that host each of the locations discussed.

Vegetarianism and Veganism – takes a look at important ecological trends around the world in the last 10 years, and highlights New Zealand as a shining example of a country with an outstanding legacy of commitment to conservation.
