Summary

How to Save a Species brings readers as close as they may ever get to some of the most endangered animals and plants on earth. Highlighting the efforts of scientists, communities, and campaign groups, it includes the astonishing success stories of species that have been saved from the edge of extinction, as well as urgent cases in need of immediate action. With a logbook-style layout and color photographs throughout, the book profiles 17 of the world’s 100 most endangered species as identified by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) — a list reflecting research from thousands of experts from around the world, including coauthor Dr. Jonathan Baillie. Young readers can delve into the fascinating world of animals and plants as rare and interesting as the humpback whale, spoon-billed sandpiper, wild yam, and pygmy three-toed sloth, and will come away with a newfound understanding of the cooperative work and action plans needed from both scientists and citizens to protect a species from extinction.
