These parks would provide safe corridors for animal migration that cut across national borders. The book makes the point that unexpected results may come from even the most well-meaning conservation efforts: helping save one animal can bring threats to another. Wild at Heart tells its story by weaving together photographs and anecdotal text, revealing the tangled relationships between animals, people, and geography. The authors show the various collisions that result from isolated viewpoints, such as the single-minded focus on conserving one species without regard for overall bio-diversity, and they speculate on prospects for a future based upon understanding that, ultimately, everything is related."@en ;
