Description

Sharks can navigate the ocean using electromagnetic fields; sloths use algae as camouflage; albatross can fly for hours without beating their wings; and orca pods each have unique cultures and languages.

There are currently 41,415 listed endangered vertebrate species, and over 16,000 of them are threatened with extinction. This book takes just 20 of these amazing creatures, from the 'celebrities' of the red list - the tigers, the northern white rhino, the kakapo - to the lesser-known, and sometimes lesser loved ones, and paints a portrait of them, their world, and the people trying to protect them. He is co-author of the World Health Organization's award-winning Inheriting the World: The Atlas of Children's Health and the Environment. Although the book was excellent I found myself feeling a bit doom and gloom after reading it, especially as I finished it a day after the UK PM pushing back on some of the UK green commitments.The diversity of life on earth is astounding, with each species perfectly adapted to its environment. Beautifully written, capturing the wonder and personality of each creature, big and small perfectly. Much like her presenting style, Megan McCubbin's writing has an effortless appeal to a diverse audience, from the curious child to the most seasoned of conservationists.

Megan McCubbin reveals the stories of the scientists, rangers and conservationists who are fighting to save these extraordinary creatures from extinction. Megan's enthusiasm for biodiversity and passion to save endangered species from extinction shines throughout. I listened so I didn't see the dyslexia friendly version of the book but I thought this was brilliant, something that had never occurred to me. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

Pretty sound balance in coupling her own experiences with the essential facts for each of the species that are covered. There are currently 41,415 listed endangered species, and over 16,000 of them are threatened with extinction.
