We live in a time of critical change…help our species record what we are doing to the planet.

From: VESPER FLIGHTS by Helen MacDonald.  Grove Press. 2020.

“We have always unconsciously and inevitably viewed the natural world as a own world-view and our own needs, thoughts and hopes…I hope my work is about a thing that seems to me of the deepest possible importance in our present-day historical moment: finding ways to recognise [she’s British] and love difference.”                                                                             

“When habitats are destroyed what is lost are exquisite ecological complexities and all the lives that make them what they are…During this sixth extinction we who may not have time to do anything else must write what we now can, to take stock.”
