Beneath Sanjay Gubbi's gentle demeanour lies Gandhian tenacity. Gubbi's home state of Karnataka preserves some of the healthiest tiger landscapes in the world, thanks in part to his dogged commitment to achieve the seemingly impossible-reroute highways that lie inside the core areas of tiger reserves, restrict traffic through national parks at night, ensure better working conditions for forest staff, and, importantly, meticulously map and link the state's fragile protected areas. Most amazing of all, he has done this while collaborating with labyrinthine government departments. Second Nature is Gubbi's forthright account of how he has achieved this, rallying support from unexpected quarters under trying conditions, while reaching out to the powers that be in Bengaluru and New Delhi. He paints a picture that is at once optimistic and sombre, and ultimately, one that requires people to band together constantly to save what is left of what is most beautiful on Earth. About the author Sanjay Gubbi is a scientist studying big cats like leopards and tigers in the wild. As a conservationist, he has achieved the remarkable feat of linking 21 reserves in Karnataka to reduce the terrible impact of habitat fragmentation. He was awarded the prestigious Whitley Award in 2017. He serves on several government committees including the State Board for Wildlife. He is especially keen on popularising conservation through local languages. Reviews This book brings together his work over the past two decades and tells wonderful stories of ecological activism under difficult conditions. I learnt much from him when I was Minister of Environment and Forests and this book shows why decision-makers should take him and what he says seriously. -Jairam Ramesh, Former Minister of Environment and Forests Sanjay seems like the best friend the wildlife of south India have ever had. Every aspiring young conservationist should read this book to gain inspiration. Sanjay
