"This is an eminently practical publication. [...] The book is packed with useful information ranging from sections on international agreements, campaigning and fund–raising to descriptions of how to age plants and animals. [...] The strong emphasis throughout on integrating conservation with human development is to be welcomed and will do much to enhance the book′s appeal overseas, especially in developing countries. [...] this is a very readable, comprehensive text that fills an important niche."Animal Welfare, Nov 2001
