Phantom Parks is a hard-hitting and passionate examination of why our national parks are failing to protect the wild - and what must be done to reverse this trend. Having travelled throughout most of Canada`s national park system, Rick Searle concludes that there is no one single cause to the current ecological crisis, rather it is about a slow death of a thousand cuts. The wild within our parks is being threatened and drained away by a variety of causes: the lobby for growth and development of park facilities to accommodate ever-increasing demands for recreation and tourism; adjacent land use such as farming, logging and mining, which contribute to the parks becoming islands of extinction; global pressures such as acid rain, climate change and the long-range transportation of pollutants. There are solutions to the crisis, however. Maintaining the wildness of the national parks now requires radical changes in the way we perceive and use them. There is hope, but we must act quickly. Phantom Parks is a book we can only ignore at our peril.
