We care for what we know… To inspire, educate and foster conservation of Earth’s biodiversity The Wealth of Nature, is a celebration nature’s ecological services and demonstrates in detail how they contribute to our health, economic prosperity, and cultural values. Hundreds of stunning original, full-color photographs and over twenty data-rich essays from some of the most highly-regarded specialists in conservation today, are compiled in this publication to offer a detailed, value-driven explanation of the various ecosystem services – clean water, fresh air, medicines and climate regulation – that support, regulate and provide all natural processes and give humans cultural context. The book explains how these services have enabled our existence on Earth and why their future – and ours – are at risk. It is not just a celebration, but also a call to arms for us to stop undercutting the life that sustains us.
