Going Native is a controversial and practical book about Australian conservation strategies and how our land use is seriously damaging and unsustainable for the Australian soil.
Michael Archer and Bob Beal describe how Australia's land and animals have evolved and why traditional European agricultural practices are unsuitable to this land and will never be sustainable here. Agriculture practices and factors like urban expansion are fragmenting and killing our native animals and biodiversity. Species extinction rates are higher in Australia than anywhere else in the world.
Going Native covers what can be done to keep what is left of the natural Australian environment and how we can change our behaviour to ensure a more sustainable lifestyle. We have to think of ourselves as part of this country and learn how to act accordingly.
