The Grazing Revolution

A Radical Plan to Save the Earth

Description

Across two-thirds of the world’s grasslands, land is turning into desert. This phenomenon is called desertification, and it is grossly accelerating climate change. Biologist Allan Savory has devoted his life to stopping this devastation. Here, Savory shares his radical idea—an idea that upturns everything ecologists have been taught about land management.

In the 1960s, while working in Africa on the interrelated problems of rising poverty and disappearing wildlife, Savory made a significant breakthrough in understanding the degradation of grassland ecosystems. He now believes — and his work so far shows — that a surprising factor can protect grasslands and even return desertified land to health: the planned management of grazing livestock. 

In The Grazing Revolution, Savory shares his journey of re-education and discovery — and the simple method any pastoralist can use to begin reversing thousands of years of human-caused desertification. Now, after decades of study and collaboration, thousands of ranchers and land managers on five continents today follow Savory’s method of Holistic Management. This is a journey that, above all, ends with great hope for the future.
