Bahar Dutt

Description

We live in a time of serious environmental catastrophes. Every year we lose 10,000–100,000 species, even as others slip deeper into danger.

The extinction crisis is well known; what is not are stories of people trying to turn the tide. In Rewilding, environmental journalist Bahar Dutt documents stories of hope for India’s natural world. She meets people who are trying to conserve species not just by replenishing their dwindling numbers, but also by restoring their habitats in the wild. This means going to great lengths, sometimes by airlifting corals from coast to coast, or by going undercover as a spy to check the availability of toxic drugs that wiped out a bird. In the process, Bahar learns that though it may not offer easy answers, rewilding can offer great rewards. And that news about the environment doesn’t always have to be bad.

About the Author

Bahar Dutt spent her growing-up years conspiring to find a career that would keep her in the forest, chasing wild animals. As a broadcast journalist, she has reported on some of the most pressing environmental issues of our times, from deforestation in Indonesia to climate change in the Arctic. Over the last ten years, she has run a rural livelihoods project with snake charmers, headed a rescue centre for injured monkeys, pitched a tent outside Jersey Zoo for her Masters thesis, and backpacked across Kenya when she got fed up of her day job in India.
