Ignoring Nature No More

This chapter presents some final thoughts from the book's editor. He says that while animal suffering continues all over the world, there are also “good” things happening, and these can be recalled to keep us inspired and engaged when it looks like there is little or no hope. He presents some thoughts that keep him going, such as thinking positively and concentrating on successes rather than failures. He also talks about compassionate conservation, saying that if we develop compassion and empathy there is hope for our planet; if we continue to ignore nature we will make little progress dealing with the problems at hand.
