Green Wars: Dispatches from a Vanishing World
About the Book
Wildlife biologist and journalist Bahar Dutt travels to the far ends of the planet to report on some of the biggest environment stories of our time from climate change to illegal mining to big dams being constructed in rich tropical rainforests. As India makes its way to a super economy, the impact on its wildlife remains largely unreported. Dutt draws on her experience as a conservationist to look at how this tension between a modernizing economy and saving the planet can be resolved.
Sharp, incisive and in-depth, this book goes beyond the rhetoric of television debates to look at some of the leading issues facing our forests and wilderness areas. Dutt relives exhilarating moments of coming face to face with gharials and the grand old orang-utan and many creatures facing an uneasy future, in search of an answer to the question, how can we save all that is precious in a development without brakes model of economy?
A conservation biologist by training, Bahar Dutt has run an animal ambulance for injured primates, helped build rope bridges for the Colobus monkey in Africa, studied a troop of Amazonian monkeys at the world famous Jersey Zoo and worked for over a decade with a traditional community of snake charmers. But she is better known for her celebrated television journalism that has taken her far and wide. She lives in New Delhi with her dog Musibat and her husband Vijay.
