Act III in Patagonia : people and wildlife by William Conway( )

"Patagonia. The name is synonymous with awesome natural wonders. Tucked toward the toe of South America, this landscape is among the most varied and breathtaking in the world." "Drawing on decades of experience and broad knowledge of this unique region, William Conway, former President of the Wildlife Conservation Society, illuminates Patagonia's natural history and reveals current efforts to preserve its spectacular land and rare inhabitants. Through photography, personal stories, and accounts of real-life field science, Conway explores issues ranging from fisheries and ecotourism to wildlife farming and invasive species."--Jacket

The living wild by Art Wolfe( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Nearly 400 photos taken by renowned nature photographer Wolfe capture more than 140 species of wildlife in their natural habitats. "A Ulysses for the New Millenium", Art Wolfe's personal odyssey started with a photograph of a Florida panther, one of North America's rarest animals (less than 50 remaining in the wild), & ended over three years later with a photograph of a polar bear cub fresh from the den, taking its first tentative steps on spring snow. The journey to capture on film the world's most spectacular animals took him four times around the world (in a lot more than 80 days each time) & to every continent (most more than once) & over 40 different countries including Mongolia three times (without ever seeing the snow leopard he sought). However, the Bornean bay cat, never before photographed alive, did not escape his lens! His travels also included most every means imaginable: safari vehicle, horse, camel, kayak, helicopter, private & commercial jet, ultra-light, dugout canoe, elephant, fins with scuba tank, and, of course, on foot. Despite 25 years of photographing in the wild, Art compiled a list of personal firsts during this mission: learning to scuba dive-in the frigid Puget Sound in October-in order to photograph humpback whales in Tonga & great white sharks in South Africa, photographing tigers, jaguars & cougars in the wild, & visiting countries like India & Iceland. The less intrepid explorer can experience it all in Art's premier book, The Living Wild. Together the more than 140 different species, worthy of a Noah's Ark, present the case for just how much is at stake, why we should care enough to act, & why there really is reason for hope

Wildlife Conservation Society. City Zoos collection by New York Zoological Society( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In the mid 1970s, conditions at the Central Park Zoo, the Central Park Children's Zoo, the Prospect Park Zoo, and the Queens Zoo were declining, and after several years of negotiations, the New York City Parks Department, which had run the city zoos, transferred them to the New York Zoological Society (now the Wildlife Conservation Society). The collection consists of a variety of materials pertaining to the city zoos and to the Society's City Zoos Project, which, under Richard L. Lattis, directed the shutdown, redesign, construction, and reopening of the city zoos. Records from both Lattis and from the Society's General Director, William G. Conway, are included in the collection. Also included are ephemera and visual materials which document exhibits staged at the Central Park Zoo Gallery between 1988 and 2005. Additionally the collection contains a scrapbook compiled by Ronald Cheyne-Stout--the Menagerie Director for the Central Park and Prospect Park Zoos from 1934 to 1939 and in 1941--that documents the two zoos' 1934-1935 reconstruction and reopening, their exhibits and animals, and other related subjects
