    1. I love reading about wildlife, particularly the strides being taken to try and protect those species that are being killed at absurd rates When I saw the title of this book, my first impression is that it would discuss those wild animals probably different species and maybe some of the places and preserves created to try and save those animals Sadly, that isn t really what this book is about at all.Jane Alexander, some of you may know, is an actress She has also become quite the dedicated conser [...]


    2. Prominent actress Jane Alexander, who also headed the National Endowment for the Arts for quite a few years, has another side She s a passionate birder and conservationist And she writes well too In this book she writes not just about birds but about mammals, insects, and other creatures that make up our world and that we endanger She has long played major roles in conservation groups and knows many famed naturalists She went to Belize with Alan Rabinowitz, the authority on jaguars She also has [...]


    3. A light read which takes us through several wildlife hotspots around the world Jane has a balanced perspective about conservation, retaining optimism and pragmatism about human role in the ecosystem, but yet highlighting grave situations which need attention Essentially a painting with a broad brush, I think it goes a little easy on accuracy and precision in a couple of places I could sense that in the India story as well as when she refers to poisonous rather than venomous snakes.


    4. Scattershot organization doesn t hurt this collection of memories and portraits Alexander has roamed all over the world with conservationists and biologists, and she captures their dedication, the beauty of the scenery, and the fragile position of much of the world s wildlife There s also a lot of hope in the book as she describes innovative conservation programs, such as the Lion Guardians program that has enlisted Maasai warriors to protect lions instead of hunting them.


    5. I rather enjoyed this book Not my usual read reading it for an environmental book club choice But I found myself unable to read without googling birds esp during my reading so I could hear their sounds or see what they look like Reading the book was like being on an adventure but from a chair Recommend.




    6. Written by the actress, Jane Alexander, expressing her love of natural flora and fauna all over the world It is a travelogue and a plea, ultimately, for conservation Well written with many lovely passages like this one speaking of a young Ecuadorian guide Simon might have had extra eyes, he was so skilled at spotting the tiniest tree frog splayed on a green leaf in perfect green dissonance She retells a story she heard about a Humpback Whale entangled in fishing lines in Northern California Dive [...]


    7. 2017 Popsugar Challenge a book with a subtitleWild Things, Wild Places was the first book I read this year The premise is stories about wildlife and conservation I feel like it was heavier on the wildlife portion, specifically birds, than it was on conservation And parts of the conservation side of it just followed the there are less now because of ____ The blank spot can be filled in with anything relating to humans While all this IS true, we are responsible for much of the damage and degradati [...]


    8. This is an important and moving book regarding the plight of wildlife all around the world it is written by Jane Alexander ,activist,conservationist and wildlife proponent It can be distressful and heart breaking at times but that is the case when you see what challenges animals are facing by human incursion It reinforces that it is our moral responsibility to care for our planet for our future and the unique and endangered animals that it is home to Hope and optimism are needed but also a commi [...]


    9. It took me a while to read this book due to me putting it down for periods at a time Let me explainIt was eye opening yet heartbreaking at the same time Earth is screaming for help and Jane Alexander is translating it for us When I was younger all I wanted was for people to care and respect earth and her inhabitants but as I got older I found that people just don t care I became enraged then even worse, I lost hope I d put the book down thankful someone has so much passion about this and then I [...]
