            The world is currently experiencing a sixth period of mass species extinction, and extinction of flora and fauna is caused by a variety of factors arising from industrial activity and increasing human population, such as global warming, climate change, habitat loss, pollution and... use of pesticides. Most causes of extinction are linked to corporate activity, either directly or indirectly. Multinational businesses in high environmental impact sectors such as the extractives industry, energy, chemicals, tourism and agriculture have been changing the natural landscape for decades, even centuries, resulting in the loss of habitats and the collapse of biodiversity and local ecosystems. This ground-breaking new book explores the linkages between the business world and extinction. It investigates corporate efforts to prevent extinction across 80 threatened species of flora and fauna around the world, focusing on corporate behaviour, corporate narrative and rhetoric, corporate accountability and the impact of corporate efforts to protect and enhance biodiversity and prevent extinction. It is the first book to explore corporate accounting and accountability in relation to species on the brink of extinction, and it looks at the efforts of responsible investors and NGOs to engage with companies on extinction prevention. Recommendations for policy and practice are presented in order to assist in extinction prevention. Contributions from international academics and practitioners investigate and assess whether corporate efforts are in fact succeeding in staying the extinction trend and whether the global corporate community can indeed offer a ray of hope for the world's dwindling biodiversity.

            The Serengeti is one of the world's most renowned ecosystems, and at its apex prowls the Serengeti Lion. These majestic mammals are iconic, and integral, and also in constant danger from encroaching humans. Craig Packer is among the unique species that has spent a lifetime ensuri...ng the study and perpetuity of these dark maned cats. He has dedicated countless research hours and dollars to the coexistence of humans and wildlife in the Serengeti. He has even proposed ways of using lion hunting to ensure their value, and hence their protection. Lions in the Balance takes us into the red-in-tooth-and-claw world of lion conservation. It is an incredibly candid, entertaining, and at points alarming look at what the future of the Serengeti lions entails, and how the politics of conservation require survival strategies far more creative and powerful than what animals (humans included) on the savannas must possess. A sequel to Mr. Packer's Into Africa, this diary based chronicle of the past decade draws readers along the dusty trails and into the spectacular sunsets of the Serengeti. Through his experiences we learn that female lions prefer their male manes dark and long, that lion attacks on humans most commonly occur during the full moon cycles, and that citizen science is shaping the world--Packer's initiative Snapshot Serengeti has helped engage globally, and locally, and has identified thousands of images of the Serengeti. The narrative moves from Arusha to the Serengeti to Washington DC, and with some temporal hopping, as often the stories are as rich and multilayered as the Serengeti ecosystem. And Mr. Packer demonstrates that he possesses himself a bit of cat, having needed nearly nine lives to persist in the ever dynamic and vexed world of conservation in Africa.
