- Issue: Fall 2014
The food web. The food chain. Foodie culture. Food deserts. Food trucks. Artisanal and industrial. Organics and genetics. Big agriculture. Small farms. Obesity and famine. Comfort food and people’s rights. Food is everywhere. It pervades every aspect of our lives.
With this edition, World Wildlife magazine is trying something new: an issue with a single focus, one dedicated to the massive, confusing implications of food. Because food is essential to all living things, but also has an outsized impact—via how it’s grown, packaged, shipped, distributed and (too often) wasted—on wildlife and natural resources. And on us.
So in these pages we’ll see one very hungry monkey, the benefits of weather monitoring stations for agriculture, and a new way to look at ugly fruit. We’ll link pine nuts to tigers and explore the positive side of food packaging. From outside experts, we’ll learn about cow-powered dairy trucks, inner-city agriculture and the overabundance/hunger divide. More than ever before, we are presenting a diversity of perspectives to help us all see food in new ways. And to make utterly clear how embedded food is in the fate of this planet we all love.
