Anmeldelser

«Fascinating, intelligent and indispensable: Hugh Warwick tackles a crucial and difficult subject that has been avoided for far too long, and does so with style, insight and verve.»

George Monbiot

«Is killing for conservation right or wrong? There might be no easy answer, but Hugh Warwick employs honest and intelligent questioning in a fruitful, fascinating exploration of one of the skeletons in conservation’s cupboard.»

Chris Packham

«It's hard to think of a more companionable guide to some of conservation's thorniest thickets than Hugh Warwick. Cull of the Wild is a journey navigated with courage, curiosity and compassion. Every nature lover should read it.»

Amy-Jane Beer

«With his customary good humour and grace, Hugh Warwick has tackled the knotted issues entailed in the control and culling of so-called pest species. While he might conclude that the matters themselves are invariably complex, his own approach is always clear and grounded in deep reflection.»

Mark Cocker

«The perfect introduction to the darker side of conservation, which Hugh Warwick explains with reverence and humour. A must read!»

Kate Bradbury

«A crucially important book on a huge and urgent subject. Hugh Warwick is the perfect person to deal with this difficult and controversial issue, which few, if any, others would be brave enough to tackle.»

Stephen Moss

«This is a fascinating book which speaks volumes about its author: his tremendous erudition, his huge range of experience, his wit, his bonhomie, and above all his humility and determination to live as ethically as life allows.»

Nick Acheson

«A thoughtful analysis of how to accommodate animal rights in an era of unprecedented environmental change.»

Kirkus Reviews

«Hugh’s approach is heartfelt and balanced … his book will force everyone to reconsider how they feel about the widespread mindset behind this controversial and recurring approach to conservation.»

Marc Bekoff

«An eye-opening book taking a balanced look at an emotive subject.»

John Miles, Bird Watching

«Timely … well written and researched.»

Simon Lester, Country Life

«Warwick’s searching meditation on the ethical uncertainties surrounding culling ... brings clarity and insight to a fraught subject.»
