Animal WatchBook - 2001
We need to protect the world we live in -- for ourselves and future generations. What is going to happen to planet Earth and the future of its wildlife? This challenging new book draws attention to the most pressing environmental concerns -- and suggests positive ways to prevent further damage. Animal Watch explains the issues -- from the loss of habitats and the effects of climate change to hunting for sport and the debate on the role of zoos. Hands-on experiments show readers how to explore the science behind the facts, while action globes suggest ways to make a difference on a daily basis. To highlight what is already being done, professionals, including a wildlife vet in Britain and a koala bear specialist in Australia, describe how their work is improving the chances of survival for the world's animals. Lively text, written in clear, nontechnical language, combines with dynamic images to suggest ways to protect our wildlife for the future.
