From the rainforest to the savannah to the depths of the ocean, animal life in every continent and habitat has been affected by human activity—in some cases, leading entire species to the brink of extinction. In this beautiful, thought-provoking book, Louise McNaught's powerful animal portraits bring to life 20 endangered creatures, including the rhinoceros, the Siberian tiger, and the Asian elephant. The text helps readers 9 and up better understand the dangers these animals face, the action being taken to protect them, and their vital importance on Earth.
