The World’s Wildlife is in Crisis. Globally, animals are being traded, hunted, poached, consumed and exploited to the point of extinction. Aaron ‘Bertie’ 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. The foreword has been written by one of the best-known environmental activists in the world, Captain Paul Watson, founder of the Sea Shepherd conservation society and a co-founder of Greenpeace.
