Canadian Geographic's Biodiversity Issue - June 2010


Posted by Gilles Gagnier on Tuesday, May 25, 2010


“Biodiversity is an attempt to invoke the splendour of the living world with a single word,” writes Candace Savage in the June issue of Canadian Geographic. “Just six syllables but they flood the mind with images: fish, bright as petals, dart through a coral reef; herds of caribou stream across frozen lakes; bees thrum, wings beat, buds burst with greenery.

In the December issue of Canadian Geographic — the magazine's 80th-anniversary issue, an all-wildlife extravaganza — we look at the evolution of wildlife conservation and management. As Brian Payton notes in the cover story, flash back 80 years, or 40 years, or even one year, and you will see myriad examples of wanton entitlement by humans believing that unlimited numbers of animals were put on Earth simply for us to hunt. Fortunately, you will also find many stories of innovative thinkers who have ...
