China's Threatened WildlifeBook - 1996
The rich variety of China's wildlife and environment is truly astonishing -- but it may not survive. Many plant and animal species fund nowhere else in the world include the giant panda. Pere David's deer, the Yangtze dolphin, and the Chinese alligator. Discover from firsthand accounts the great dilemma that rapid economic and social changes in China are bringing about, that has produced dangers to wildlife but a greater awareness of environmental matters. See a snarling snow leopard poised to pounce, macaque monkeys being fed, and a host of other stunning original photographs of wildlife and scenery -- truly a moving and vital celebration of China's unique natural heritage.
