    eBook Richard Girling ´ ´ The Hunt for the Golden Mole PDF/EPUB Ñ Hunt for the hunt ebok, golden book, mole kindle, The Hunt epub, for the download, Hunt for the pdf, The Hunt for the Golden Mole PDFFrom Victorian animal collecting to present day poaching Girling surveys the contradictory human instincts toward exploitation and preservation of mammals The book is rather scattered with too little about the actual quest for the mole but the message about species extinction is powerful The Somali golden mole has never been seen in the wild except as a few bones in an owl pellet found by an Italian zoologist in 1964 For some reason it captured Girling’s imagination becoming a symbol of rarity and fragilitySee my full review at The BookbagI would recommend The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert and A Buzz in the Meadow by Dave Goulson over this one

    eBook Richard Girling ´ ´ The Hunt for the Golden Mole PDF/EPUB Ñ Hunt for the hunt ebok, golden book, mole kindle, The Hunt epub, for the download, Hunt for the pdf, The Hunt for the Golden Mole PDFPicked this up at the library without ever having heard of it The novel concerns the author's search for the rare golden mole which has never been observed but parts of which had been previously found in an owl pellet More than that however the book concerns itself with the history of hunting issues of biodiversity and humanity's challenging relationship with animals

    eBook Richard Girling ´ ´ The Hunt for the Golden Mole PDF/EPUB Ñ Hunt for the hunt ebok, golden book, mole kindle, The Hunt epub, for the download, Hunt for the pdf, The Hunt for the Golden Mole PDFLike a lot of books hung on a 'hook' in this case the author's 'search' for a species of mole only known from a couple of bits of bone in an owl pellet there is a vague sense here that the thing isn't quite a cohesive whole nor a collection of linked essays There are some splendid gems like the beeswax eating bird whose stomach enzymes break down tuberculosis but sadly what will linger is the 'howl of despair' against a world in which species are being wiped out by mankind's seething stupidity

    eBook Richard Girling ´ ´ The Hunt for the Golden Mole PDF/EPUB Ñ Hunt for the hunt ebok, golden book, mole kindle, The Hunt epub, for the download, Hunt for the pdf, The Hunt for the Golden Mole PDFWhile this book makes some very good points I was really hoping for something that focused on living golden moles and other animals rather than the history of killing animals for science However books that bring awareness to little known animals such as golden moles are generally helpful in their conservation so I would still recommend this
