ECOS: A Review of Conservation

ECOS in 2014

ECOS: A Review of Conservation is a thrice-yearly digital publication filled with articles and comment on the latest topics in UK conservation. Over its thirty-five years on paper and digitally, ECOS has grown into a source of provocative, questioning writing on the important conservation issues of our times.

“We value ECOS primarily because it is a forum for uninhibited discussion of some of the fundamental issues facing the human race: how we can avoid further degradation of the things that make life worth living, in the face of ever increasing numbers of people and of their material demands. ECOS reminds us of the richness of what we have already lost, helps us to work out ways of restoring some of that richness, and explores alternative ways forward.” (Quote from Philip and Myrtle Ashmole)

Access to ECOS is through a subscription to BANC, which gives you access to the ECOS Archive, as well as BANC news and events.
