Product description

Product Description

This is the story of the formative years of nature conservation in the state of New South Wales, Australia. During the 1950s and 60s, the highly-respected NSW system of national parks, nature reserves and wildlife refuges was largely developed by the Fauna Protection Panel. The Panel also developed innovative ways to manage wildlife on private lands including kangaroos, koalas, waterfowl and possums.

The story is told by Allen A. Strom, Chief Guardian of Fauna for 10 years and a member of the Panel throughout its existence, prior to the founding of the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service in 1967. Allen Strom was a leading conservationist in Australia and this book provides his insight into the difficulties of improving nature conservation when dealing with some politicians and the machinations of bureaucracy. But it also demonstrates what can be done to make change on a shoe-string budget, with few staff, plenty of will and passion.

Allen Strom wrote this book in 1980 and he passed away in 1997. The book was never published and was 'lost' until a team of environmental educators located the manuscript and had it digitally transferred into this e-book. It is a must-read for anyone who wishes to make environmental change for the better, particularly through government.
