The Edge of Extinction
Hay Festival 2015
The natural world is rapidly diminishing. Traditions and cultures are dying out. Extinction has denied many human groups and languages a future and it now even threatens the ways of life of the affluent. Pretty takes us on a personal journey to show why we should look again at those marginal communities who still live close to nature, the land and sea. The lessons these disappearing societies have to teach us may well be ones that we later come to rely on. Chaired by Andy Fryers.
