From nature reserves to rewilding, from intensive farming to Extinction Rebellion, the last half-century has seen vast and far-reaching changes in the nature conservation movement in Britain. In this book, eight eminent conservationists give their personal views of the changes in their particular fields over the past fifty years and speculate on possible future trends. The papers are based on presentations given at a conference held in York.
