The book presents encompassing concepts and a collaborative framework that recognizes the interconnections among humans, wildlife, and our shared environment with a goal of optimizing health outcomes for all. This book provides the broadened and integrative view that considers an encompassing manner to develop a more holistic approach needed to confront the complex issues facing us today.
