Reviews

`This book is a testament to these beliefs, profiling as it does numerous individuals who, by virtue of their extensive commitment and deep love for the creatures they are trying to help, have succeeded in rescuing endangered species from extinction, mainly through captive breeding.' -- John May, Generalist Blog
`Jane Goodall says she is often accused of being unrealistically optimistic. In fact, she deserves our thanks and praise for keeping hopes alive and inspiring millions of people the world over with her undinting efforts, to make us see the beauty and importance of nature and to encourage us all to do more to help preserve it.' -- John May, Generalist Blog
`[Jane Goodall] combines stateliness with a kind of holiness, her religion a predominately green one.' -- Stephen Moss, G2 Guardian
`Jane Goodall's book has demonstrated all manner of brave, messy, patient, self-sacrificing and occasionally rather barmy-sounding behaviour in their battle to preserve the Earth's biodiversity.' -- Telegraph
`With hope but without hype, Goodall and her co-authors identify rare animals and birds, and describe the threats to them, pitching stories of survival to move and inspire new generations of ecologists.' -- Times
`Goodall's approach, while mater-of-fact, is refreshingly hopeful - the stories she tells are ones of success. But there is a sense of urgency to the book and she offers practical advice for anyone wanting to involve themselves in conservation.' -- Financial Times
``Hope for Animals and their World' is Goodall's gift of optimism to us, her shining a light on how we can all make a contribution towards mending a wounded planet.' -- Glasgow Herald
`Jane Goodall has always been about motivation - her early work proved to be an inspiration to biologists and conservationists... this latest book is no exception. It's a pep talk to gloomy conservationists, and while there is no grand thesis it is a timely reminder that however good humans are at destruction we are also remarkably clever at fixing things.' -- New Scientist
``Hope for Animals' is a tribute to the thousands of men and women who dedicate themselves to rescuing endangered species and keeping them safe, which can mean anything from teaching them how to eat bugs or how to fly, to how to mate. Through Goodall, these people become the voice of the voiceless and the Keepers of the Planet.' -- Elizabeth Abbott, Globe and Mail
