David Bellamy – Conflicts In The Countryside

£11.99

Although currently grabbing the headlines, fox hunting is not the only controversial issue affecting our countryside: wind farms; organic farming; the “right to roam”; species conservation and control – these are just some of the topics discussed in a no-nonsense way by renowned environmental campaigner David Bellamy, one of the world’s leading experts in conservation. Not all is doom and gloom, however, as is shown by the many case studies of successful projects that are going on throughout the length and breadth of these islands and that provide examples of how co-operation and understanding can advance the cause of every countryside interest group. As you would expect, Bellamy pulls no punches; his conclusions and recommendations are typically forthright. There is, however, no doubt that if they are heeded, the future of the British countryside will be far brighter. This is a book that must be read by anyone who cares for Britain’s greatest asset – its countryside.
