The World’s Wildlife is in Crisis. Globally, animals are being traded, hunted, poached, consumed and exploited to the point we are in the midst of a sixth mass extinction event.

Aaron Gekoski is an award-winning environmental photojournalist who has travelled to the most inhospitable places on Earth to document human-animal conflict.

The result is Animosity, an unsettling yet gripping look at the trades pushing wildlife to crisis point; from Cambodia’s dog-drowning dungeons and Indonesia’s wet markets, to West Africa’s voodoo markets and the global Wildlife Tourism industry.

This stunningly evocative coffee-table book, replete with hundreds of emotive and powerful photographs, might be hard to look at but must be seen.

Aaron’s storytelling abilities and evocative, haunting and beautiful imagery make this an unmissable book for adventurers, animal lovers, photographers, conservationists and anyone with an interest in the natural world. Priced at £40, it will be set free on November 2.
