Description

A Passion for Wildlife chronicles the history of the Canadian Wildlife Service and the evolution of Canadian wildlife policy over its first half century. It presents the exploits and accomplishments of a group of men and women whose dedication to the ideals of science, conservation, and a shared vision of Canada as a country that treasures its natural heritage has earned them the respect of their profession around the world.

Contributor Notes

J. Alexander Burnett is a naturalist and freelance writer who has contributed dozens of popular articles on natural history and wildlife conservation topics to national and regional newspapers and periodicals.

Editorial Review

Burnett’s institutional history of the CWS, “one of Canada’s most important and valuable cultural institutions,” is timely, and useful for environmental historians and anyone interested in wildlife policy in Canada ... Despite the large amount of complex information the book needs to convey as the first history of the CWS, Burnett is to be commended for introducing readers to some of the committed individuals, professionals who worked for the service “who actually care about wildlife in Canada.”

— University of Toronto Quarterly, Winter 2004/05
