Waking up to roaring lions near her doorless dung hut; encountering elephants while walking with other women to fetch water from a distant spring; realising that older Himba people saw themselves as part of nature, not as separated from it nor at its apex ... These were just some of the experiences that would change the way Margaret Jacobsohn thought about wildlife conservation - and our modern deficiency in ecological intelligence. So, the Capetonian journalist and environmental writer turned researcher became a Namibian and helped pioneer an African way of doing conservation and tourism.

Famed for its spectacular landscapes and gloriously unclad geology, Namibia is a country that wears its skeleton on the outside, the author says.

Similarly, her story is as gritty and real as Namib sand. The conflicts and mishaps, the triumphs and breakthroughs - what it takes to break paradigms and do decades of community based conservation in remote and inaccessible places, earning some of the top international environmental awards along the way.

A book that will make you think.

Explore ecology in this accessible introduction to how the natural world works and how we have started to understand the environment, ecosystems, and climate change. Using a bold, graphic-led approach, The Ecology Book explores and explains over 85 of the key ideas, movements, and acts that have defined ecology and ecological thought. The book has a simple chronological structure, with early chapters ranging from the ideas of classical thinkers through to attempts by Enlightenment thinkers to systematically order the natural world. Later chapters trace the evolution of modern thinking, from the ideas of Thomas Malthus, Henry Thoreau, and others, right the way through to the political and scientific developments of the modern era, including the birth of the environmental movement and the Paris Agreement. The ideal introduction to one of the most important subjects of our time.

Through her captivating photographs and absorbing text, Amy Schoeman shares with the reader the strange beauties of her life's passion.

Anyone who spends time beside the sea knows there's a wealth of 'treasure' to be found, be it natural or manufactured, living or washed up. Beachcombing in South Africa is a friendly guide to the seashore's rich pickings.

Short chapters such as Floaters and drifters, Sea-beans, Sponges, Eggs and egg cases, and many more, detail what can be found and how to interpret or identify specimens. Items may reveal links to activities or biological events in the nearby ocean - or, perhaps, thousands of miles away. They may relate to human activities, such as fish or bird tagging, or be oceanographic instruments separated from their moorings. Or they may be part of the growing menace of flotsam and jetsam from the planet's burgeoning human population.

This book will enhance the experience of beachcombing, satisfy curiosity about finds, and contribute to a better understanding of the life in our oceans and along our shores.

East Africa is known for its diverse landscapes - expansive savannas, lakes, and towering mountains - but also for its numerous protected areas: its parks and reserves that are the domain of the continent's most spectacular wildlife. These areas play a vital role in protecting both the environment and the animals it supports, and annually play host to thousands of visitors who come to experience wild Africa.

This guide to the parks and reserves of East Africa provides a valuable overview of some 58 protected areas across East Africa. The book is divided into the four East African countries Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda - and, for each park, provides essential background on geology and landscape, climate, vegetation and wildlife, capturing the essence of what each area offers. It also covers the brief history of each park.

Other features include:
Numerous colour photographs of animal and plant life.
Detailed park maps, indicating places of interest and best sites to view key species.
Text panels with highlights, facilities and activities, wildlife facts, and important alerts.
A photographic gallery of mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and trees, for quick identification of common species.
This must-have guide to the region's protected areas will prove indispensable to local and international visitors to the region and to all nature enthusiasts.

Sea Change takes you on an evocative journey into the secret life of an almost unknown ecosystem; the beautiful kelp forest of Southern Africa. Craig and Ross spent eight years exploring this sea forest together, diving almost every day. This is the story of what they found in the wild, and how it has transformed their lives.
CRAIG FOSTER is an award-winning filmmaker and avid naturalist. He has received over sixty international awards, including the Golden Panda, the “Oscar” of natural history filmmaking. He grew up foraging and diving on the Cape Peninsula and for the past eight years has pledged to dive in the kelp forest 365 times a year. Craig has worked closely with some of the world's top kelp forest biologists, archaeologists, anthropologists and San rock art experts. He also spent many years studying with master San bushmen trackers in the Kalahari and it is from these experiences that he formed his underwater tracking method. This is his fourth book.

ROSS FRYLINCK has been exploring the South African coastline as a surfer and free-diver for most of his life. He started the Wavescape Ocean Festival, and has been pioneering ocean conservation and culture in South Africa for the past 15 years. He was once a commissioning editor for Cambridge University Press, and has been telling stories about the sea since his first school essay..

Here's another batch of David Muirhead's unrespectable creatures, following his successful earlier volume of hilarious animal accounts (The Bedside Ark ). It offers a wealth of accurate information on each of the profiled creatures, while revealing their softer sides and the near-human frailties from which they suffer - and temptations for which they fall. Delightful, humorous pen-and-ink sketches accompany many of the stories.

Muirhead's mix of humour, mythology, anecdotal tales and folklore builds quirky and captivating portraits of each animal, and makes for a lighthearted, funny - as well as illuminating - read.

This new anthology, offering something different from the standard collection of animal CVs, will appeal to anyone interested in humorous writing and the natural world, no matter their age (from teen to adult) or level of knowledge.

Originally published in 1981, Living Shores was for many years the standard reference for marine science students but was also embraced by a popular market for its fascinating insights into marine and coastal habitats and the life they support. After a long absence, this classic has been revived and thoroughly reworked to incorporate the many dramatic changes that our oceans and coasts have undergone over the past few decades.

This book is the first of a two volume set, and examines the different marine ecosystems and how humankind interacts with them. It discusses the evolution of the sea and continents and looks at the ecology of coastal systems, including intertidal zones, beaches, dunes, estuaries, islands, kelp forests and reefs. The book unpacks the relationship between humans and the marine environment, and the consequences of harvesting and mining to meet our needs. It also addresses the impact of climate change, and highlights what can be done to protect our environment.

Richly supported by full-colour photography and numerous explanatory illustrations, diagrams and graphs, this book will prove invaluable to students and teachers but will also appeal to anyone with a fascination for nature and our marine world in particular.
