When I heard that Eugene was writing a book, I was stunned because I have known him for over 20 years and he is one of the busiest men I know.
His concentration on conserving wildlife world wide and working with a wide team of colleagues around the globe has been an inspiration to me and I trust in what I do for wildlife.
Wildlife Betrayed is the best summary I have read of how Prohibiting the sustainable use of wildlife and what he calls the Multiple Game being played by NGOs and International Players is eroding wildlife abundance, diversity and presence in rural areas worldwide. He also includes a section on how to “Take Back Control”.
This is definitely a book worth reading and keeping available in your library as a reference and as a worthwhile re-read when questions arise.
