Sometimes in the conservation world we focus on the negatives and forget to celebrate our achievements. We can learn a lot from stories of past success – which is just what the new Stories of Hope exhibition in the Leventis Library highlights.
These books are just a small selection of the success stories in conservation. You are welcome to browse the books on display, or borrow them to read – we have plenty more on the library shelves we can bring out to showcase!
Do you have a favourite conservation success book? Share it with us in the comments.
