[Extract] The growing political agenda behind food security will create many challenges for nature conservation. Increasing efforts will be needed to protect vulnerable species within a matrix of agricultural production landscapes and include wildlife species within farming systems. Our science will be needed to inform the integration of conservation and food security goals in land management and to provide insights and innovation in the development of sustainable food-production systems that support animal conservation rather than conflict with it. Addressing the global challenges of food security and protection of nature will not be easy. However, this book demonstrates that we have the knowledge, expertise and skills to meet the challenge. Our civilisation depends upon our reconnecting agriculture and nature and using these resources well.
