Beloved Beasts: Michelle Nijhuis with Oliver Milman
"Michelle Nijhuis discusses Beloved Beasts: Fighting for Life in an Age of Extinction, her vibrant history of the modern conservation movement seen through the lives and ideas of the people who built it, in conversation with Oliver Milman. Through engaging storytelling and firsthand accounts of contemporary species preservation, Nijhuis shares biographical portraits of those who began the fight to save animals from extinction, traces the development of conservation biology, and confronts the darker side of conservation, shadowed by racism and colonialism.
Presented as part of the Shelf Life series of virtual events from the Virginia Festival of the Book, a program of Virginia Humanities. Learn more at VaBook.org..."
