The American Beaver in New York (1895-2005): A Century of Wildlife Conservation (Hardcover)
The American Beaver in New York: A Century of Wildlife Conservation details the story of the American beaver in New York from the point of total extirpation to a return of prominence during the 20th century. The authors give a comprehensive explanation of the conservation activities of three generations of wildlife biologists who at times risked their lives to manage a keystone wildlife species. The comeback story of this species will inspire future biologists to take up the cause of wildlife conservation and to help educate those interested in the work and commitment that goes into protecting our world's precious animals.
