WILDLIFE QUOTES



  • "The spruce and cedar on its shores, hung with gray lichens, looked at a distance like the ghosts of trees. Ducks were sailing here and there on its surface, and a solitary loon, like a more living wave, — a vital spot on the lake's surface, — laughed and frolicked, and showed its straight leg, for our amusement."
    ― Henry David Thoreau, The Maine Woods

  • "Those who have never seen a leopard under favourable conditions in his natural surroundings can have no conception of the grace of movement, and beauty of colouring, of this the most gracefuL and the most beautiful of all animales in our Indian jungles."
    ― Jim Corbett, Man-Eaters of Kumaon

  • "When you are where wild bears live you learn to pay attention to the rhythm of the land and yourself. Bears not only make the habitat rich, they enrich us just by being."
    ― Linda Jo Hunter, Lonesome for Bears: A Woman's Journey in the Tracks of the Wilderness

  • "If we can teach people about wildlife, they will be touched. Share my wildlife with me. Because humans want to save things that they love."
    ― Steve Irwin

  • "Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's needs, but not every man's greed."
    ― Mahatma Gandhi

  • "What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another."
    ― Mahatma Gandhi

  • "If we kill off the wild, then we are killing a part of our souls."
    ― Jane Goodall

  • "The truth is: the natural world is changing. And we are totally dependent on that world. It provides our food, water and air. It is the most precious thing we have and we need to defend it."
    ― David Attenborough

  • "In conservation, the motto should always be 'never say die'."
    ― Gerald Durrell, The Aye-Aye and I: A Rescue Mission in Madagascar

  • "Left alone, the Florida panther would be remembered as a textbook exercise on how to go extinct while your abundant and vociferous advocates argue about the process."
    ― Stephen J. O'Brien, Tears of the Cheetah: The Genetic Secrets of Our Animal Ancestors

  • "I learned long ago that conservation has no victories, that one must retain connections and remain involved with animals and places that have captured the heart, to prevent their destruction. I am sometimes asked why, given a world that is more wounded and scarred, I do not simply give up, burdened by pessimism. But conservation is my life, I must retain hope"
    ― George B. Schaller, A Naturalist and Other Beasts: Tales from a Life in the Field
