Nicola Markus
Australia faces unique conservation challenges that most Australians do not know enough about. On Our Watch is an attempt to remedy this situation.
Our stewardship of this country's natural assets over the past two hundred years has been appalling, and on the current trajectory of careless environmental pillaging, further massive decline would be a certainty . The future of the environment is being decided on our watch .Australia faces unique conservation challenges that most Australians do not know enough about. On Our Watch is an attempt to remedy this situation.Respected conservationist Nicola Markus believes that it is time people realised that our environmental issues are not being solved by those tasked with their solution, and that the support and involvement of the public is essential if we are to make a difference in environmental conservation.In this thoroughly researched and passionately written book, Markus explains the very real and immediate threats to Australia's natural environment and cuts through the spin to show how you can become involved in conserving our environmental heritage.
