A Geography of Hope: Saving the Last Primary Forests highlights the spectacular forests and ecosystems of our Earth that are fast disappearing as a result of human activity. Each chapter reports on current research, sharing the life-sustaining benefits of primary forests and the decades of conservation initiatives that have gone into their protection. With their breathtaking and inspirational beauty, these forests encompass some of the most culturally and spiritually important places on Earth. Their unique ecological value—from biological diversity to freshwater quality and unmatched carbon storage—cannot be replaced by degraded secondary forests and plantations. Their conservation is critical to the safe transition away from fossil fuel dependency. Indeed, the protection, restoration, and reforestation of primary tropical forests alone could provide 50 percent of the climate mitigation scientists have deemed necessary over the next fifty years.

 

This volume elegantly underscores the urgent threats to primary forests and the speed with which their irreplaceable value is being destroyed by land clearing and degradation. Together, we must make a concerted effort to prioritize the protection of the Earth’s remaining primary forests, for we cannot achieve the goals of our international climate agreements until we safeguard these magnificent intact ecosystems.

The IUCN Red List
100.00

The IUCN Red List: 50 Years of Conservation. This appealing new series builds on over two decades of experience publishing CEMEX Conservation Series, an enthralling and authoritative collection of books that not only enhance awareness of our connection with nature, but also confirm our commitment to the conservation our extraordinary planet’s natural resources.
We are particularly delighted to present this book in partnership with the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Together, we enjoy a long history of collaboration, starting with the publication of the Red Book in 2001. The IUCN is the world’s oldest and largest global environmental organization and the primary authority on the conservation status of species. Its Red List of Threatened Species has a long, established history as the world’s most comprehensive information source on global conservation. The Red List conveys the urgency of conservation issues to both policy makers and the general public to prevent the extinction of species.
