12 Small Acts to Save Our World

12 Small Acts to Save Our World
from WWF
Foreword by Ben Fogle

12 Small Acts to Save Our World: Simple, Everyday Ways You Can Make a Difference
by WWF with a foreword by Ben Fogle

Ever wanted to save the world?

It’s easy to feel like we can’t make a difference. But small, easy actions, if taken by enough people, can move mountains – and save planets.

Written in collaboration with leading environmental experts from WWF, this short book provides simple changes we can all make to our everyday lives, from morning to night.

These aren’t the only things you can do. Nor are they things you have to do. But these 12 small acts are basic steps anybody can take, and if even one of them sticks, our children will inherit a better world.

Acts like:

  • Turning off devices instead of leaving them on standby
  • Buying less cotton clothing (a T-shirt needs 2,400 litres of water to make!)
  • Using reusable straws when possible
  • Turning off the tap while you brush your teeth

will take only moments, but if enough people commit to them, we can make a real difference to our planet.

'Now really is the time to act. You don’t have to be a superhero – everyone can make a difference by following this book’ – Ben Fogle

Africa's Big Five

Jean Hartley

Africa's Big Five And Other Wildlife Film Makers
by Jean Hartley with a foreword by Richard Leakey

Jean Hartley, born in Kenya, was acknowledged as being the first to legitimise "fixing" for wildlife film crews. Over the last 25 years, she has worked on over a thousand films, the vast majority being about wildlife and nature.

In this insightful book she features five of the great film makers who all started their careers in Kenya in the 1950s, legends whom she is proud to call personal friends. Watching all their films, and many more, she became fascinated by the history of film making in Kenya and determined to find out when it all started.

She traces the roots of wildlife film back a hundred years, drawing on accounts of the original film makers and the professional hunters who guided those early safaris. She tracks the changes from those grainy, speeded up, silent films through to the technologically perfect High Definition and 3D films that are being made today.

163 pages including a chronology of wildlife film making in East Africa - ask if interested in this book.

A Life on Our Planet : My Witness Statement and a Vision for the Future

A Life on Our Planet : My Witness Statement and a Vision for the Future

by David Attenborough

A legacy-defining book from Sir David Attenborough, reflecting on his life’s work, the dramatic changes to the planet he has witnessed, and what we can do to make a better future.

A Life on Our Planet : My Witness Statement and a Vision for the Future
by David Attenborough

"The Earth's life-support machine, the thing we humans rely upon for everything we need, runs on its biodiversity. Yet the way we live on Earth now is sending it into a decline. I have been a witness to this decline. This book contains my witness statement, and my vision for the future the story of how we came to make this, our greatest mistake, and how, if we act now, we can yet put it right." David Attenborough

A Life On Our Planet: My Witness Statement and Vision for the Future reflects on David's remarkable career exploring and documenting the natural world, and the decline of the planet's environment and biodiversity he has observed first-hand in that time. This is an intimate, urgent and impassioned book borne out of a lifetime's experience and knowledge, presenting David's view on the future that lies ahead if we continue as we are, and a plan for how to avoid that future.

As a young man David went out into the wild and experienced the untouched natural world but even then it was an illusion, already day to day we were losing the planet's wild places, its biodiversity.

"This book records some of the dreadful damage mankind has already wrought upon the natural world and the real and imminent danger that things could get much, much worse if we do not act now. But it is also a hopeful book: it offers a different future. It describes some of the ways in which we can begin to turn things around if only we all have the will to do so. Surely together we must now find that determination, and begin to make that change, for the sake of all the inhabitants of our planet.

Sir David Attenborough is Britain's best-known natural history film-maker. His career as a naturalist and broadcaster has spanned nearly seven decades.

His first job - after Cambridge University and two years in the Royal Navy - was at a London publishing house. Then in 1952 he joined the BBC as a trainee producer, and it was while working on the Zoo Quest series (1954-64) that he had his first opportunity to undertake expeditions to remote parts of the globe, to capture intimate footage of rare wildlife in its natural habitat.

He was Controller of BBC 2 (1965-68), during which time he introduced colour television to Britain, then Director of Programmes for BBC Television (1969-1972). In 1973 he abandoned administration altogether to return to documentary-making and writing, and has established himself as the world's leading Natural History programme maker with several landmark BBC series, including Life on Earth (1979), The Living Planet (1984), The Trials of Life (1990), The Private Life of Plants (1995), Life of Birds (1998), The Blue Planet (2001), Life of Mammals (2002), Planet Earth (2006) and Life in Cold Blood (2008).

Sir David was knighted in 1985, is a Fellow of the Royal Society, and stands at the forefront of issues concerning the planet's declining species and conservation.

See the world. Then make it better.

'I am 94. I've had an extraordinary life. It's only now that I appreciate how extraordinary.

As a young man, I felt I was out there in the wild, experiencing the untouched natural world - but it was an illusion. The tragedy of our time has been happening all around us, barely noticeable from day to day - the loss of our planet's wild places, its biodiversity.

I have been witness to this decline. A Life on Our Planet is my witness statement, and my vision for the future. It is the story of how we came to make this, our greatest mistake - and how, if we act now, we can yet put it right.

We have one final chance to create the perfect home for ourselves and restore the wonderful world we inherited.'

All we need is the will to do so.'

The book has been released to coincide with the global release of a Netflix film of the same title, directed by Jonnie Hughes for Silverback Films and commissioned by WWF. See the trailer (left).

Back to Nature: How to Love Life - and Save It
by Chris Packham and Megan McCubbin

One thing has become clear this year - we need nature more than ever. And it needs us too.

From our balconies and gardens to our woodlands, national parks and beyond, Back to Nature captures the essence of how we feel about the wildlife outside our windows. Through personal stories, conservation breakthroughs and scientific discoveries, it explores the wonder and the solace of nature, and the ways in which we can connect with it - and protect it.

‘Rousing, polemical and heartfelt’ – Gardens Illustrated

‘An invitation to take action’ – The Observer

Back to Nature celebrates the bond with wildlife that many formed for the first time while confined at home this spring, but also explains the biodiversity crisis and examines contributors to this great wave of extinctions – from salmon farming and pesticides to the persecution of hen harriers. It is well-researched – with McCubbin providing short scientific interludes – and more nuanced than you might expect from Packham’s many Twitter rants. Is he becoming more diplomatic in old age? “No, I’m getting more strategic,” he says. “I got very angry this afternoon about the Japanese restarting whaling. I don’t blame the Japanese, I blame the world’s conservationists for letting them do it. They just said, ‘Er, that’s not a very good idea at all.’ And then nothing happened. It’s our fault. I still get very angry. There’s no dulling of the blade. The blade if anything is getting sharper and more useful because I’m running out of time. There’s less time in my lifetime to make a difference.” Patrick Barkham

BBC Wildlife Documentaries in the Age of Attenborough
by Jean-Baptiste Gouyon

This book explores the history of wildlife television in post-war Britain. It revolves around the role of David Attenborough, whose career as a broadcaster and natural history filmmaker has shaped British wildlife television.

The book discusses aspects of Attenborough's professional biography and also explores elements of the institutional history of the BBC-from the early 1960s, when it was at its most powerful, to the 2000s, when its future is uncertain. It focuses primarily on the wildlife 'making-of' documentary genre, which is used to trace how television progressively became a participant in the production of knowledge about nature. With the inclusion of analysis of television programmes, first-hand accounts, BBC archival material and, most notably, interviews with David Attenborough, this volume follows the development of the professional culture of wildlife broadcasting as it has been portrayed in public.

It will be of interest to wildlife television amateurs, historians of British television and students in science communication.

The book is available at Bookdepository.com (with free worldwide delivery!), Amazon.co.uk & Amazon.com

"Confessions of a Wildlife Filmmaker" - Book Trailer

Confessions of a Wildlife Filmmaker
The Challenges of Staying Honest in an Industry Where Ratings Are King
By Chris Palmer, with foreword by Jane Goodall

Confessions of a Wildlife Filmmaker is part memoir, part confession, and part indictment of the cable and television networks for failing to put conservation, education, and animal welfare ahead of ratings and profits.

It’s also about the mistakes he’s made while struggling to excel in a profession he loves. He argues that the state of the wildlife filmmaking industry worsens every year and says that it’s time for wildlife filmmaking to move in a more ethical direction.

He makes a compelling case that we must make broadcasters like Animal Planet, Discovery, National Geographic, and the History Channel do better, and that it’s time for viewers and filmmakers to fight back.

Review by Piers Warren: How refreshing to read such an honest and revealing account of the wildlife film-making industry. Chris Palmer describes his own journey through the business, his concerns as he realised it was not as ethical as many people think, and offers insights into how the situation could be improved. It's not often that you read a book that is both clear about the depth of the problems and who are causing them, but also leaves the reader on an optimistic note with the list of positive solutions that could and should be adopted. The threats that the natural world currently face are far too important and urgent for large networks to continue making facile and damaging shows, and this book shows how bad the situation has become. Highly recommended.

Dead Zone: Where the Wild Things Were
by Philip Lymbery

A tour of some of the world's most iconic and endangered species, and what we can do to save them.

Most of us are aware that many animals are threatened by extinction--the plight of creatures such as polar bears, tigers, and whales has been well publicized. While this is typically attributed to climate change and habitat destruction, few people realize that there is a direct link to consumer demand for cheap meat.

Some may see intensive farming as a necessary evil. After all, we need to produce more food for a growing global population and are led to believe that squeezing animals into factory farms and growing crops in vast, chemical-soaked prairies is efficient and leaves land free for wildlife--but this is far from the truth. With the limits of the planet's resources now seemingly within touching distance, awareness is growing about how the wellbeing of society depends on a thriving natural world. Through the lens of a dozen iconic and endangered species, Dead Zone examines the role of industrial farming in their plight and meets the people doing something about it.

By the author of the internationally successful Farmageddon, Dead Zone takes the reader on a global safari involving some of the world's most iconic and endangered species. The focus shifts from the plight of farm animals to the impact of industrial farming on specific endangered species, as the book lays bare the myths that prop up factory farming and shows what we can do to save the planet with healthy food.

The book is available at Bookdepository.com with FREE delivery worldwide.

ECOSTREAMZ is a new digital streaming platform similar to Netflix and Hulu, whose solitary goal is to provide easy access to important films and media dealing with environmental, social justice and wildlife conservation issues. In this day, when so much is happening at breakneck speed, it is now more critical than ever to be well informed. ECOSTREAMZ’ mission is to become THE media clearinghouse for the activist community to learn from, grow and come away being able to make a positive difference in this world.

While there are numerous streaming services out there today covering virtually every genre and topic, to our knowledge, nobody is doing exactly what ECOSTREAMZ is doing, the way we’re doing it.

So what makes us different?

  • Partnerships – We’re not just a collection of movies. If you browse our site, you will notice we are aligning ourselves with organizations all over the globe covering a wide variety of issues. Through these partnerships, we provide organizations a wider audience by hosting their videos on our platform which can ultimately translate into more donors for the non-profit. Additionally, we promote our partners in newsletters and all appropriate press material. Organizations even have the opportunity to receive quarterly royalties based upon viewership of their videos during the prior period, see below. Some of our current partners include: International Primate Protection League, Ape Alliance, Gorilla Foundation, ALERT, CAPE (Center for Animal Protection and Education), SYRCL (South Yuba River Citizen’s League), the Borneo Project, In Defense of Animals, WildAid and most recently IISD (the environmental reporting service for the United Nations).
  • Revenue Share – We give back. In fact, we give back more than most streaming services….80% of net revenue goes directly back to the filmmakers and/or organizations through a quarterly revenue share of films and media viewed during that period. Most streaming services only offer royalty percentages of between 25% and 50% net.
  • Member discounts – We offer our partner’s members discounts on subscriptions to ECOSTREAMZ. Anywhere from 25% to 50% off the already low monthly subscription rate of $3.99.
  • Singular Focus – Our only concern is making the world a better place. We are accomplishing this by presenting the most diverse collection of issue-related content anywhere. For that reason, our platform contains films both short and long and from all parts of the world. Some have received awards and some may be well known. But most you will never see anyplace else but on our site. This is due to the fact that we do not acquire films based on their popularity, but rather, on what they can offer the world in terms of a change message.

If you are interested in having ECOSTREAMZ host your films or if you wish to become a sponsoring organization, please contact us at: info@ecostreamz.com.

The website www.ecotravelguide.eu was founded by Michael Cowton in 2013.

Michael, an outdoors writer, editor and photographer, has a passion for nature-based travel and wildlife.

A member of the International Travel Writers Alliance and The International Ecotourism Society (TIES), Michael is a former editor of EcoTravel, Outdoor Pursuits, Camping, Lakeland Walker and Which Motorcaravan magazines, and national newspaper journalist.

He says: "With an increasing awareness of globally responsible principles in our everyday lives, the public is clearly keen to adopt these values through their choice of holiday destinations. That is harnessed with the growing understanding that the survival of habitats and species is mostly in local people's hands, and that they need to be able to derive real benefits from their environments if they are to be conserved. With ecotourism increasingly being applied to all tourism that has tangible benefits for local people and the environment, the website aims to bring to the forefront these unusual, alternative and authentic experiences grounded in culture, nature and wildlife, and rooted in local knowledge."

Farmageddon: The True Cost of Cheap Meat
by Philip Lymbery

Farm animals have been disappearing from our fields as the production of food has become a global industry. We no longer know for certain what is entering the food chain and what we are eating - as the UK horsemeat scandal demonstrated. We are reaching a tipping point as the farming revolution threatens our countryside, health and the quality of our food wherever we live in the world.

  • Our health is under threat: half of all antibiotics used worldwide (rising to 80 per cent in US) are routinely given to industrially farmed animals, contributing to the emergence of deadly antibiotic-resistant superbugs
  • Wildlife is being systematically destroyed: bees are now trucked across the States (and even airfreighted from Australia) to pollinate the fruit trees in the vast orchards of California, where a chemical assault has decimated the wild insect population
  • Cereals that could feed billions of people are being given to animals: soya and grain that could nourish the world's poorest, are now grown increasingly as animal fodder

Farmageddon is a fascinating and terrifying investigative journey behind the closed doors of a runaway industry across the world - from the UK, Europe and the USA, to China, Argentina, Peru and Mexico. It is both a wake-up call to change our current food production and eating practices and an attempt to find a way to a better farming future.

Farming, Food and Nature: Respecting Animals, People and the Environment
Edited by Joyce D’Silva & Carol McKenna

Joyce D’Silva is Ambassador Emeritus for Compassion in World Farming, the leading charity advancing the welfare of farm animals worldwide. She is co-editor of The Meat Crisis (second edition 2017).

Carol McKenna is Special Advisor to the Chief Executive of Compassion in World Farming and organised the Extinction and Livestock Conference on which this book is based.

ISBN: 9781138541443 | Paperback | 280 pages

Website: www.routledge.com/9781138541443

The Extinction and Livestock Conference – the world’s first international event to explore the impact of livestock production on the future of life on Earth – took place on 5 and 6 October 2017 at the QEII Conference Centre in London.

Organised by Compassion in World Farming and WWF-UK, the #extinction17 event saw world-renowned speakers take to the stage to discuss how intensive livestock systems are at the heart of so many problems affecting health, food security, biodiversity, the environment and animal welfare.

The event was the beginning of what will become an international movement working to identify solutions to mend our broken food systems and to ensure that the current climate change targets and the Sustainable Development Goals are achieved in order to save the planet, and secure food for future generations.

Farming, Food and Nature: Respecting Animals, People and the Environment
Edited by Joyce D’Silva & Carol McKenna

Foreword by Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE

Livestock production and its use of finite resources is devastating biodiversity and pushing wildlife to the brink of extinction.This powerful book examines the massive global impact caused by intensive livestock production and then explores solutions, ranging from moving to agroecological farming to reducing consumption of animal products, including examples of best practice and innovation, both on land and within the investment and food industries.

Leading international contributors spell out the problems in terms of planetary limits, climate change, resources, the massive use of cereals and soy for animal feed, and the direct impact of industrial farming on the welfare of farmed animals. They call for an urgent move to a flourishing food system for the sake of animals, the planet and us. Some offer examples of global good practice in farming or the power of the investment community to drive change, and others highlight food business innovation and exciting developments in protein diversification. Providing a highly accessible overview of key issues, this book creates a timely resource for all concerned about the environmental, social and ethical issues facing food, farming and nature. It will be an invaluable resource and provide inspiration for students, professionals, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and the general reader.

"A wide range of experts and policy makers explore innovative ideas and solutions for the future of the planet, with a focus on our health and food systems. I strongly recommend reading this book to anyone interested in a sustainable diet and a healthy environment, as well as animal welfare."
Hilal Elver, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food

"The weight of evidence for changing the food system is now overwhelming, yet resistance to change is stubborn. We are all part of that. No one likes to think they aren’t in control of what they eat. How can we unlock this mismatch? This book is an important collection of arguments why we must and what needs to happen."
Tim Lang, Centre for Food Policy, City, University of London, UK

Wildlife-film.com Review:

"The October 2017 'Extinction and Livestock Conference' in London was a ground-breaking event attended by a broad spectrum of experts from many different sectors with varied interests in the impact of livestock farming. It was refreshing to see so many diverse people come together to try and find common ground in a attempt to come up with solutions to the many problems associated with intensive animal agriculture. This book collates those ideas and those of the many experts that were unable to attend this conference. It is an important book that could very well help bring about a fairer, more compassionate and planet-friendly food system, if taken notice of. The opening paragraph of the Introduction is: "There’s a sense of urgency in the air. The evidence for rapid climate change is growing; biodiversity and wildlife are obviously in trouble; the very soils on which we all depend for food are losing their vitality; water is becoming scarce and polluted; and, scandalously, poverty and hunger are still with us. Our planet itself is in turmoil." This urgency needs to be felt by all of us, not just those already in the know ... All decision-makers should read this book if they are ever going to get to grips with why a food-system so entrenched but so damaging needs to change. Lots of great ideas are put forward and the case for veganism is strong. Read this book, share the ideas and live in hope."

Fighting for Birds: 25 Years in Nature Conservation
by Mark Avery with a Foreword by Chris Packham

Devoted to birds and wildlife since childhood, Mark's early scientific research at Oxford, Aberdeen and the RSPB provided a solid background for his management, ambassadorial, and political lobbying activities which were to follow and his larger than life, yet quietly humane personality has provided the final tools in his own, unique, nature conservationists toolbox.

In this book, Mark mixes a great many stories from his professional life at the RSPB with personal anecdotes and passionate arguments on past and present issues in bird and nature conservation. He shows us something of the many scientists whose work paves the way for conservation action, places domestic conservation into an international context, takes us behind the scenes to glimpse the politicians who have worked with him, or against him, along the way. Mark leaves us armed with practical tips and a guiding philosophy to take wildlife conservation though the troubled years that lie ahead.

A personal, philosophical and political history of 25 years of bird conservation, this book provides an instructive and amusing read for all those who would like a glimpse into the birds and wildlife conservation world what the issues are, what must be done, how it can be done, and the challenges, highs and lows involved.

"…if you have any real interest in the workings of saving species and their habitats then it’s a tremendously rewarding ‘must read’" Chris Packham

Fingers in the Sparkle Jar: A Memoir
By Chris Packham

A beautifully told, deeply personal growing-up memoir from the BBC presenter about life, death, love and nature.

Every minute was magical, every single thing it did was fascinating and everything it didn't do was equally wondrous, and to be sat there, with a Kestrel, a real live Kestrel, my own real live Kestrel on my wrist! I felt like I'd climbed through a hole in heaven's fence.

An introverted, unusual young boy, isolated by his obsessions and a loner at school, Chris Packham only felt happy in the fields and woods around his suburban home. But when he stole a young Kestrel from its nest, he was about to embark on a friendship that would teach him what it meant to love, and that would change him forever. In his rich, lyrical and emotionally exposing memoir, Chris brings to life his childhood in the 70s, from his bedroom bursting with fox skulls, birds' eggs and sweaty jam jars, to his feral adventures. But pervading his story is the search for freedom, meaning and acceptance in a world that didn’t understand him.

Beautifully wrought, this coming-of-age memoir will be unlike any you've ever read.

Fingers in the Sparkle Jar is like nothing else I know – a flickering vat of life itself. A brilliant and remarkable book.’ Robert MacFarlane

We think this book is essential reading for all interested in Chris, his career and the natural world but also anyone interested in the trials of life.

Himalaya: Mountains of Life
by Kamal Bawa & Sandesh Kadur

The Eastern Himalaya—land of Gods, of ancient mountain kingdoms, of icy peaks and alpine meadows—is like no other place on Earth.

The life and landscapes of the region are as diverse, spectacular and fragile as the mountains themselves. Even today, these mountains hold many mysteries: unnamed species, primeval cultures and the promise of magical cures to heal all of humanity.

Himalaya—Mountains of Life takes us on a journey of biocultural discovery, from the great canyon of Yarlung Tsangpo and the Siang Gorge in the east to the Kali Gandaki Gorge in the west.

Along the way, Himalaya demonstrates through breathtaking imagery and words, why the preservation of this heritage is so important—not just for us, but for the future of all life on Earth.

Hope in Hell : A decade to confront the climate emergency

Hope in Hell : A decade to confront the climate emergency

Hope in Hell : A decade to confront the climate emergency
by Jonathon Porritt

Climate change is the defining issue of our time - we know, beyond reasonable doubt, what that science now tells us. Just as climate change is accelerating, so too must we - summoning up a greater sense of urgency, courage and shared endeavour than humankind has ever seen before.

The Age of Climate Change is an age of superlatives: most extreme this, biggest that, most costly ever. The impacts worsen every year, played out in people's backyards and communities, and more and more people around the world now realise this is going to be a massive challenge for the rest of their lives. In Hope in Hell, Porritt confronts that dilemma head on. He believes we have time to do what needs to be done, but only if we move now - and move together. In this ultimately optimistic book, he explores all these reasons to be hopeful: new technology; the power of innovation; the mobilisation of young people - and a sense of intergenerational solidarity as older generations come to understand their own obligation to secure a safer world for their children and grandchildren.

'Brave and unflinching in setting out the reality of the hell towards which we're headed, but even more urgent, passionate and compelling about the grounds for hope if we change course fast enough, Hope in Hell is a powerful call to arms from one of Britain's most eloquent and trusted campaigners.' Caroline Lucas, MP

'Extraordinarily powerful, deeply troubling, scathing but ultimately purposeful and hopeful. This book is a clarion call to action, and action now. After reading this, we know for sure that nothing, not even a pandemic, must divert us from the most serious problem facing every living creature on the planet. In plain language, Jonathon Porritt is spelling it out. This is our last chance. Read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest. Then act.' Michael Morpurgo

Ivory, Apes & Peacocks: Animals, adventure and discovery in the wild places of Africa
by Alan Root

"Alan, almost single-handedly in my opinion, made wildlife films grow up" David Attenborough

Alan Root is one of Africa's most bitten. In the course of his adventures he has been mauled by a leopard, a silverback gorilla and a hippo, and almost lost his life to a deadly puff adder, which claimed one of his fingers. Root's unmatched experience of East African wildlife and his appetite for risk have made him a world-class naturalist and film-maker. He's one of the great wildlife pioneers.

In Ivory, Apes & Peacocks, Alan tells the story of his life's work, from his arrival in Kenya as a young boy (furious at having to leave behind Britain's birds) to the making of his game-changing films. Instead of sticking to the Big Five animals, these looked up close at whole ecosystems - baobab trees, termite mounds, natural springs - and involved firsts such as tracking the wildebeest migration from a balloon, then flying it over Kilimanjaro, filming inside a hornbill's nest and diving with hippos and crocodiles.

Along the way we meet Sally the pet hippo and Emily the house-proud chimp, watch as Dian Fossey catches sight of her first mountain gorilla and have sundowners with George and Joy Adamson. And here, too, is Joan Root, Alan's wife and collaborator for over thirty years, who was brutally murdered in retaliation for her environmental campaigning.

In this extraordinary memoir we look at Africa's wonders through the eyes of a visionary, live through hair-raising adventure and personal sorrow, and also bear witness to a natural world now largely lost from view.

Foreword by Sir David Attenborough

Journeys in the Wild : The Secret Life of a Cameraman
by Gavin Thurston
Foreword by Sir David Attenborough

From Gavin Thurston, the award-winning Blue Planet II and Planet Earth II cameraman with a foreword by Sir David Attenborough comes extraordinary and adventurous true stories of what it takes to track down and film our planet's most captivating creatures.

Gavin has been a wildlife photographer for over thirty years. Against a backdrop of modern world history, he's lurked in the shadows of some of the world's remotest places in order to capture footage of the animal kingdom's finest: prides of lions, silverback gorillas, capuchin monkeys, brown bears, grey whales, penguins, mosquitoes - you name it he's filmed it.

From journeys to the deepest depths of the Antarctic Ocean and the wide expanse of the Saharan deserts, to the peaks of the Himalayas and the wild forests of the Congo, Gavin's experiences describe much more than just the incredible array of animals he's filmed. He invites you to come inside the cameraman's hidden world and discover the hours spent patiently waiting for the protagonists to appear; the inevitable dangers in the wings and the challenges faced and overcome; and the heart-warming, life-affirming moments the cameras miss as well as capture.

'Gavin's book is extraordinary: his easy prose and gasp-making encounters make for a gripping and very funny read. It's a rollercoaster ride with a complete professional. I loved it.' Joanna Lumley

My Penguin Year : Living with the Emperors - A Journey of Discovery

My Penguin Year : Living with the Emperors
A Journey of Discovery

My Penguin Year : Living with the Emperors - A Journey of Discovery
by Lindsay Mccrae

BBC DYNASTIES CAMERAMAN'S ENTHRALLING STORY OF EMPEROR PENGUIN LIFE

When the BBC asked BAFTA-winning cameraman Lindsay McCrae to go to Antarctica to film emperor penguins he was thrilled. After discussing it with his wife Becky they agreed that, although it would mean him being away for 11 months, he should do it. But then she became pregnant and it seemed like the worst idea in the world - not just to miss the birth of his first child, but the first 7 months of his life. Weeks of anguished discussions followed before they decided he should go because it was his dream project and the chance might never come again.

My Penguin Year recounts Lindsay's adventure to the end of the Earth, filming the most resilient creatures in nature, while coping with being over 15,000km away from Becky and all the comforts of home - something which almost proved too much. Out of that experience he has written an unprecedented portrait of Antarctica's most extraordinary residents, the emperor penguins. They march up to 100 miles over solid ice to reach their breeding grounds. They choose to breed in the depths of the worst winter on the planet; and in an unusual role reversal, the males incubate the eggs, fasting for over 100 days to ensure they introduce their chicks safely into their new frozen world. And they are uniquely vulnerable to the unprecedented melting of the polar ice cap.

In weaving their story with his epic journey, Lindsay has created a masterpiece of natural observation - and a deeply moving tale of human endeavour in the harshest environment on the planet.

Chris Packham says: 'A dramatic saga forged by passion, honesty and a rare skill as a naturalist and film-maker. Twelve men have walked on the moon. But how many have spent an entire season with the Emperors in Antarctica? Maybe more, likely less. Lindsay McCrae has - and this is his wonderful and frank story. There are lines of penguins and blizzards, but there's also the emotional turmoil of being separated from his home, his new wife and his unborn child. All his musings and observations combine to produce a compelling tale of the man, those extraordinary birds and that lonely place at the end of the earth. So turn off the heating, put on your gloves and head deep south into a frozen land of dreams and nightmares, all played out in the world of beautiful Emperors'

Rebirding - Restoring Britain's Wildlife

Foreword by Stephen Moss

  • Winner of the Wainwright Prize for Writing on Global Conservation
  • Winner of the Richard Jefferies Society and White Horse Book Shop Literary Prize 2019

An economic solution to rewilding our landscapes, creating a future where large, wild areas maintain wildlife.

Britain has all the space it needs for an epic return of its wildlife. Only six percent of our country is built upon. Contrary to popular myth, large areas of our countryside are not productively farmed but remain deserts of opportunity for both wildlife and jobs. It is time to turn things around. Praised as ‘visionary' by conservationists and landowners alike, Rebirding sets out a compelling manifesto for restoring Britain's wildlife, rewilding its species and restoring rural jobs – to the benefit of all.

Sea Change Book: Primal Joy and the Art of Underwater Tracking
by Craig Foster and Ross Frylinck

There is a wild sea-forest growing beneath the wind and waves at the southern tip of Africa. Here, millions of creatures live in a borderless realm still ungoverned by man and it is strange and beautiful beyond the telling.

Craig Foster and Ross Frylinck grew up playing in these forests, and this early immersion in the ocean had a subtle and profound impact on the course of their lives. The book, edited by Philippa Ehrlich, documents their rediscovery of the forests of their childhood and showcases Craig’s photographic work over the past decade.

Craig has become a world expert in kelp forest ecology and developed the world’s first form of underwater tracking. Diving without wetsuits in the icy waters, both Ross and Craig discovered how immersion in the cold generated new reserves of energy for their minds and bodies, and how curious forest creatures became more receptive to them.

Sea to Summit
One Man's Pleasure in Scotland's Wildlife
By Derek B McGinn

This selection of images of creatures to be seen in Scotland, is the product of the author's enthusiasm for his native country's wild places and the things that live there. Compiled from images collected over a dozen years since his retirement from the world of education the text outlines his belief that in this digital age, through publication of their photographic work, many amateurs like himself can help introduce and inform people in Scotland, and visitors from abroad, about the natural world that lies in many cases not far from their doorsteps His particular interest in species such as mountain hare, ptarmigan and snow bunting give a clue as to his favourite places in Scotland and his photograpic images of these species have seldom been bettered. His love of the high ground is apparent too from the number of the plants illustrated which belong to the moorlands and hills. His fascination with the shorelands is well ilustrated in his images of shorebirds, from those to be found wading in sandy places to those that cling to the cliffs of Scotland's well known seabird colonies.

The accompanying audio CD does not duplicate the book's contents but provides a complementary description of Scottish habitats through twelve sound pictures or 'soundscapes' mixed from recordings made from the Atlantic to the North Sea. Particulary atmospheric are the tracks of corncrakes calling all around the stereo picture on the outer island of Barra or the "chorus" of Roe Deer barking in a Strathspey woodland.

Neither the book nor CD are exhaustive in their selection of images and sounds leaving many more species for the nature watcher, and listener to seek out inspired by this unique collection of images and sounds from the Scottish landscape. And for the visitor from far away here is an ideal, compact distillation of some of Scotland's beautiful wildlife to take home and through which to recall so much of what makes Scotland and its wildlife special.

Shooting in the Wild
An Insider’s Account of Making Movies in the Animal Kingdom
By Chris Palmer, with foreword by Jane Goodall

A veteran producer examines the thrilling yet controversial world of wildlife filmmaking—from celebrity follies to life-and-death perils.

Wildlife and nature films are a hugely popular entertainment genre: networks such as Animal Planet and Discovery are stars in the cable television universe, viewers flock to IMAX theaters to see jaw-dropping footage from the wild, and the venerable BBC still scores triumphs with series such as Planet Earth.

As cinematic technology brings ever-more-breathtaking images to the screen, and as our direct contact with nature diminishes, an ever-expanding audience craves the indirect experience of wild nature that these films provide.

But this success has a dark side, as Chris Palmer reveals in his authoritative and engrossing report on the wildlife film business. A veteran producer and film educator, Palmer looks past the headlines about TV host Steve Irwin’s death by stingray and filmmaker Timothy Treadwell falling prey to his beloved grizzlies, to uncover a more pervasive and troubling trend toward sensationalism, extreme risk-taking, and even abuse in wildlife films.

He tracks the roots of this trend to the early days of the genre, and he profiles a new breed of skilled, ethical filmmakers whose work enlightens as well as entertains, and who represents the future that Palmer envisions for the industry he loves.

The End of Animal Farming
How Scientists, Entrepreneurs, and Activists Are Building an Animal-Free Food System
by Jacy Reese

Many books and articles have documented the devastation animal agriculture causes to human health, the economy, the environment, and of course animal welfare. Public figures from Bill Nye to Richard Branson have said that the future of food is animal-free. But readers and listeners are left with one burning question: How do we actually get from here to there? In The End of Animal Farming (Beacon Press: November 6, 2018), Jacy Reese outlines an evidence-based roadmap to a humane, ethical, efficient food system where slaughterhouses are obsolete.

Reese tells the stories of activists using data to steer policy and behavior, scientists making clean meat — real meat made from animal cells without animal slaughter, entrepreneurs founding million-dollar food companies (even a billion in one case!), and thoughtful consumers driving demand to help build this animal-free food system. The End of Animal Farming calls upon readers to join these change-makers in one of the most important social movements of our time. In broader terms, Reese outlines methods for studying effective social change and the expansion of humanity's moral circle, paving the way for future effective altruists to tackle the world's most pressing social problems.

The Shark and the Albatross: Adventures of a wildlife film-maker
by John Aitchison

For twenty years John Aitchison has been travelling the world to film wildlife for the BBC and other broadcasters, taking him to far-away places on every continent. The Shark and the Albatross is the story of these journeys of discovery, of his encounters with animals and occasional enterprising individuals in remote and sometimes dangerous places. His destinations include the far north and the far south, expeditions to film for Frozen Planet and other natural history series, in Svalbard, Alaska, the remote Atlantic island of South Georgia and the Antarctic. They also encompass wild places in India, China and the United States. In all he finds and describes key moments in the lives of animals, among them polar bears and penguins, seals and whales, sharks and birds, and wolves and lynxes.

He reveals what happens behind the scenes and beyond the camera. He explains the practicalities and challenges of the filming process, and the problems of survival in perilous places. He records touching moments and dramatic incidents, some ending in success, others desperately sad. There are times when a hunted animal triumphs against the odds, and others when, in spite of preparation for every outcome, disaster strikes. And, as the author shows in several incidents that combine nail-biting tension with hair-raising hilarity, disaster can strike for film-makers too. This is natural history writing at its absolute best: evocative, informative and gripping from first to last.

The Norfolk Cranes' Story
By John Buxton, Chris Durdin and Nick Upton

This book – published in July 2011 – tells the story of how cranes bred at Horsey in Norfolk, and how they were protected and studied there.

The cranes’ story starts with their arrival at Horsey in 1979. Their first nesting attempt was in 1981 and the first chick fledged in 1982.

From this slow start in the Broads, the re-colonisation of this iconic wetland bird is now taking small but steady steps forwards elsewhere in the UK.

Their guardian at Horsey was – and is – John Buxton. Much of what we know about cranes in the UK was contained in John’s memory and notebooks. The co-author is Chris Durdin from Honeyguide Wildlife Holidays and for many years on the RSPB's staff. With John providing the information and Chris doing the writing, this was how the book was completed.

In part three, Cranes in Europe, Nick Upton describes the challenges facing cranes in the rest of Europe, charting their recent rise in numbers that has contributed to their reappearance in the UK.

The Uninhabitable Earth: A Story of the Future
by David Wallace-Wells

'A profound book, which simultaneously makes me terrified and hopeful about the future' Jonathan Safran Foer

Selected as a Book of the Year 2019 by the Sunday Times, Spectator and New Statesman
A Waterstones Paperback of the Year and shortlisted for the Foyles Book of the Year 2019
Longlisted for the PEN / E.O. Wilson Literary Science Writing Award

It is worse, much worse, than you think.

The slowness of climate change is a fairy tale, perhaps as pernicious as the one that says it isn't happening at all, and if your anxiety about it is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible, even within the lifetime of a teenager today.

Over the past decades, the term "Anthropocene" has climbed into the popular imagination - a name given to the geologic era we live in now, one defined by human intervention in the life of the planet. But however sanguine you might be about the proposition that we have ravaged the natural world, which we surely have, it is another thing entirely to consider the possibility that we have only provoked it, engineering first in ignorance and then in denial a climate system that will now go to war with us for many centuries, perhaps until it destroys us. In the meantime, it will remake us, transforming every aspect of the way we live-the planet no longer nurturing a dream of abundance, but a living nightmare.

TYR Solutions is a risk mitigation company.

We provide a number of solutions from training, equipment and consultancy. Our philosophy is that no two organisational entities are alike, and that many interrelated factors such as the nature of their business, profile of their employees and the geographical range of their assets, uniquely determine their level of exposure, hence customised solutions are required to meet their needs. Whilst TYR Solutions operates predominately in high risk hostile environments for a number of media organisations, we have also deployed consultants on documentaries for health and safety purposes, to build jungle base camps, provide remote medical facilities and individual tracking and secure communications.

TYR Solutions has identified the need for medical/security awareness consultancy, communications and tracking support for documentary and wildlife production companies. We have a number of consultants with remote location and FGASA Field guides. Our consultants can also operate as logistics and base camp managers. TYR can also offer pre trip planning.

TYR Solutions can enhance communications through the sale or rental of satellite phones, Bgans and personal and vehicle tracking devices and can either monitor the tracking platform for the client or we can set the client with their own platform.

Our Mission Statement:

To provide superior solutions through customer training, consultancy and support in order to exceed our customer‚s expectations through continuous improvement and interaction.

I'll look forward to hearing from you.

Unfair Game: An exposé of South Africa's captive-bred lion industry

Unfair Game: An Exposé of South Africa's Captive-bred Lion Industry

Unfair Game: An Exposé of South Africa's Captive-bred Lion Industry
by Michael Ashcroft

In April 2019, Lord Ashcroft published the results of his year-long investigation into South Africa's captive-bred lion industry. Over eleven pages of a single edition of the Mail on Sunday, he showed why this sickening trade, which involves appalling cruelty to the 'King of the Savannah' from birth to death, has become a stain on the country.

Unfair Game features the shocking results of a new inquiry Lord Ashcroft has conducted into South Africa's lion business. In the book, he shows how tourists are unwittingly being used to support the abuse of lions; he details how lions are being tranquillised and then hunted in enclosed spaces; he urges the British government to ban the import of captive-bred lion trophies; and he demonstrates why Asia's insatiable appetite for lion bones has become a multi-million-dollar business linked to criminality and corruption, which now underpins South Africa's captive lion industry.

Where do you get your protein
by Hench Herbivore

This book was designed to finally put an end to that age old question about where vegans get their protein from. I talk through my journey from being the biggest meat eater that most people have ever met to where I am today, some misconceptions about protein, how much protein you really need and where to get it from. I then present you with 30 delicious, healthy, high protein recipes including:

  • Morning meals
  • Dips and spread
  • Soups, chillies, stews and more
  • Salads and nibbles
  • Hearty mains
  • Baked savoury delights
  • And healthy treats

All recipes have full macros included and the book can be downloaded on multiple devices.

While it’s true that the recipes in this book are perfect for those requiring a larger protein intake (e.g. strength and physique athletes), they are based around healthful whole plant foods, making them suitable for all. My aim for this book is to show you just how easy it is for ANYONE to meet their protein needs with plants so every recipe was created with that in mind. I didn’t want to create just another cookbook; I wanted to create something that really, finally, made it clear that protein is not an issue!

Wild Kingdom: Bringing Back Britain's Wildlife
by Stephen Moss

Can Britain make room for wildlife? Stephen Moss believes it can.

The newspaper headlines tell us that Britain’s wildlife is in trouble. It’s not just rare creatures that are vanishing, hares and hedgehogs, skylarks and water voles, even the humble house sparrow, are in freefall. But there is also good news. Otters have returned to the River Tyne; there are now beavers on the River Otter; and peregrines have taken up residence in the heart of London.

Stephen Moss travels the length and breadth of the UK, from the remote archipelago of St Kilda to our inner cities, to witness at first-hand how our wild creatures are faring and ask how we can bring back Britain’s wildlife.

Mike Linley has been producing and filming factual wildlife documentaries for over 30 years. Showing TV audiences all over the planet the wonders of the natural world has given him an immense amount of pleasure.

However, one thing that’s always concerned him is that the programmes he's made have only been viewable at home, on the TV, removed from the wild spaces of Britain.

But now new technology is changing this. Over the past year he has been working with interpretation specialists Ugly Studios to develop interactive touchscreen displays.

These screens enable his vast catalogue of digital video footage, photographs and wildlife facts to be viewed in situ, on a reserve, right there, where the wildlife can be seen. Not only is this fascinating for visitors, it is a useful tool for visitor centre staff to use; helping visitors identify the wild species they have seen and so learn more about them.
