Grounded in experience and science, Our Better Nature: Hopeful Excursions in Saving Biodiversity presents readers with stories, essays, and resources to guide and inspire action in favor of nature everywhere. Dedicated to pioneering biologist and author Edward O. Wilson (1929–2021). A lifelong observer of nature, E. O. Wilson noted what we all must: Of all the challenges facing the planet, the loss of biodiversity and the current extinction crisis are among the gravest. In the face of this, and in light of Wilson’s optimism in spite of it, Our Better Nature offers messages of hope.

  • Stories of creative citizens whose successes with protecting and restoring nature are examples we can apply anywhere.
  • Essays by regional experts who help us understand the power of resilient ecosystems, of nature education for all ages, and Vermont’s dedication to conservation science.
  • Resources for turning our collective desire to protect biodiversity into actions that do.

Our Better Nature inspires individuals and communities to carry Vermont’s thriving framework for sustaining biodiversity beyond all borders and into meaningful actions that protect nature around the world.

With an afterword by noted ecologist Doug Tallamy.
