A beautifully illustrated and fascinating compendium of some of the world’s most vulnerable creatures – and how they can be saved.
Three species vanish every hour. Our incredible world is at risk, but we still have time to save it.
In this beautifully illustrated collection, conservationist and wildlife broadcaster Megan McCubbin speaks to scientists, rangers and conservationists fighting to reverse the sixth mass extinction. From changing shark legislation and tracking deadly fungi, to homegrown glow-worm farms and sperm-collecting kakapo helmets, the methods are endless and sometimes too sci-fi to believe.
Whether it’s the infamous northern white rhinos and the Sumatran orangutans, or the lesser-known icons like the sunflower sea stars and the lady slipper orchids, the battle is on for their survival, and we all have a part to play.
