The book Wild Again: The Struggle To Save The Black-Footed Ferret focuses on black-footed ferrets. Once feared extinct, and still one of North America's rarest mammals, the black-footed ferret exemplifies the ecological, social and political challenges of conservation in the West, including the risks involved with intensive captive breeding and reintroduction to natural habitat.

Author David Jachowski draws on more than a decade of experience working to save this species. His unique perspective and informative anecdotes reveal the scientific and human aspects of conservation as well as the immense dedication required to protect a species on the edge of extinction.

By telling one story of conservation biology in practice — its routine work, triumphs, challenges and inevitable conflicts — this book gives readers a greater understanding of the conservation ethic that emerged on the Great Plains as part of one of the most remarkable recovery efforts in the history of the Endangered Species Act.

This 256-page, hardcover book was published in March 2014 and is available at the University of California Press website, Amazon and other book retailers.
