Philip has always been a visionary with his writing too, always seeking new insights and helping others to learn from his international research. His second book Dead Zone: Where the wild things were has been the first book to show how factory farming is a major driver of wildlife declines worldwide: from iconic mammals, to sea life, birds, reptiles and insects and how once plentiful species now face extinction due in large part to humankind’s drive for cheap meat.

Dead Zone: Where the wild things were book cover

Dead Zone takes the reader on a journey around the world, from the rainforests of the Amazon to the Midwest plains of America; the palm plantations of Sumatra to the volcanic diversity of Galapagos; the grasslands of England to the Malaysian jungle. In a global safari focussing on some of the world’s most endangered species, it lays bare the myths that prop up factory farming and shows what we can do to save the planet with healthy food.

All proceeds of Philip’s books go towards Compassion in World Farming.
