Ex­treme Con­ser­va­tion

The Week (US) - - 22 Arts - By Joel Berger (Univ. of Chicago, $30)

Joel Berger is “a hero of bi­ol­ogy who de­serves the high­est hon­ors that sci­ence can be­stow,” said Tim Flan­nery in The New York Re­view of Books. A con­ser­va­tion­ist who reg­u­larly puts his life in dan­ger to gather knowl­edge about en­dan­gered species, he has fre­quently dressed up as a po­lar bear to study musk ox and other crea­tures of the Arc­tic. His “ex­tra­or­di­nary” mem­oir makes plain his com­mit­ment, and why he’s com­piled a long record of “achiev­ing great things in the tough­est places on Earth.”
