Saving the Tropical Forests, Paperback / softback Book

Saving the Tropical Forests Paperback / softback


The destruction of the tropical forest is one of the major problems of our time.

Vast areas are rapidly becoming wastelands which support only a few tough weeds, perhaps some cattle, and the farms allowed to the poor.

This book provides a vision of hope: in Latin America.

Africa. And South East Asia, growing numbers of people are developing techniques specifically designed to promote the wise use and preservation of remaining forest lands.

However, these grassroots strategies are often ignored in favour of grandiose schemes which inevitably fail.

This pattern must be broken now or the tropical forests will be lost forever.

Published in association with the Smithsonian Institution.

Preface by Michael Robinson, Director, National Zoological Park.
