A new book entitled On The Edge takes a historical and strategic look at rainforests. With half of the world’s estimated rainforests remaining, what does the future hold for these vital ecosystems.
Conservationist Claude Martin analyses the science and economics of rainforest conservation. Urbanization, population growth and climate change all threaten the remaining rainforests. The global ecosystem depends on these rainforests and their conservation will create economic opportunities.
Postive Rainforest Conservation
The book finds hope in positive rainforest conservation projects around the world. Claude Martin is a former head of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and a biologist. Currently serving as Chancellor of the International University in Geneva, Martin will present his book to the Club of Rome think tank in Milan on June 4th to commemorate World Environment Day 2015.
Tropical Rainforests have been at the centre of the environmental debate since the 1970s – but what is their situation today? Watch the WWF video below to find out more.
STOP PRESS: Stay tuned for details of an upcoming competition to tie in with this significant book launch.
