Many of today’s top conservationists carried out similar activities until they saw the error of their ways. One very special lady, my zoology teacher, helped me ‘see the light’ by teaching me to look closer at nature: to seek the real truths and to question and argue if my observations differed from those of other people.
For instance: on the cover of the book is a salmon, Salar the Leaper. He’s doing just that: it's a great sight watching him as he leaps and negotiates the falls but . . . hmm, not true.
Migrating birds are said to learn from other birds which have done the journey before but . . . not necessarily.
Got your attention yet? You may disagree but I would advise you first, on these subjects, to look a little closer: even better though, read my book!
