In his 30-year career in nature conservation, Craig has worked as a conservation scientist and planner for TNC, WCS, and the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.

Edward Game - Lead Scientist with The Nature Conservancy. He has worked on conservation plans in over 15 countries and published more than 30 papers on aspects of conservation decision making. He is author of the manual for the world's most widely used conservation planning software, Marxan, and was the recipient of the Great Barrier Reef Foundation's inaugural prize for innovative concepts to conserve the reef in the face of climate change.


"In a world where conservation planning is all too often separate from conservation practice and where the planning literature is scattered, academic and fractious, this book offers a unique marriage of the practical and the academic, of planning and practice, and of where and how to achieve conservation outcomes in real life situations. I highly commend it." --Kent H. Redford, Archipelago Consulting "In Conservation Planning: Informed Decisions for a Healthier Planet, Craig Groves and Ed Game have produced a well organized, easy to read account of pragmatic approaches to safeguarding creation. Our grand children and great grand children will thank us if the ways of thinking and working described in this book are applied widely, urgently, and soon." --David W. Hulse, University of Oregon "Craig Groves and Edward Game's opus on "Conservation Planning" is underpinned by carefully selected scientific literature, strongly illustrated with the work of The Nature Conservancy and others, and up-to-date in including emerging themes like climate change. Recommended for all those seeking solutions to the challenges of planning ecosystem conservation." --Thomas Brooks, International Union for Conservation of Nature "Craig Groves and Eddie Game have done it--they have captured the extensive collective wisdom of their many years putting conservation science and planning into practice--and show how scientific rigor combined with stakeholder-driven objectives can lead to more transparent and better outcomes for conservation. The scientific case and public support for nature protection will improve by leaps and bounds if we heed the good guidance so compellingly presented in Conservation Planning." --Mary Ruckelshaus, Stanford University"As human populations grow, national economies continue to develop of the back of natural resources and the climate rapidly changes, where and how best to conserve nature is becoming an increasingly complex question. Planning for nature conservation now requires a range of skills across the ecological, social, economic, and political sciences. This book, framed with a vast array of excellent real world examples and the contemporary approaches, is a necessary addition for anyone interested in the practice of conservation planning." --James Watson, Society for Conservation Biology
