The End of Eden: Wild Nature in the Age of Climate Breakdown by Adam Welz

--:--
Thanks for listening to this episode of Pagecast, brought to you by Jonathan Ball Publishers. This episode features Author Adam Welz, speaking about his latest book - The End of Eden Wild Nature in the Age of Climate Breakdown.

Typically, discussions on climate change highlight the adverse effects on human societies due to storms, droughts, and sea level rise. Yet, it's the natural world, facing a sixth mass extinction due to ecosystem disruptions and rising temperatures, that bears the brunt of climate breakdown. This has endangered countless species, signalling a rapid loss of the natural world.

"The End of Eden" navigates this narrative by offering a unique perspective on the struggles of wild species across diverse ecosystems globally. Through a mix of natural history, firsthand accounts, and modern research, Welz introduces us to the intimate struggles of several species against climate breakdown. This book stands out for its deep research and beautiful prose, aiming to foster a deeper human-nature connection and urging action to protect the natural world.

In this episode of Pagecast Welz is in conversation with CapeTalk Afternoon Drive host, John Maytham.
