About this book

Drawing on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species - the world's most objective and authoritative inventory of species at risk of extinction, the Red Book combines awe-inspiring imagery with solid science and factual accounts. More than 100 stunning photographs from some of the most renowned photographers reflect the extraordinary beauty and diversity of the natural world. The book provides a snapshot of the Red List, how it is compiled, and offers unique insight into a selection of species included, together with the actions needed to save them.

&i;`The splendid images - of animals and plants and the places they inhabit - are vivid testimony of the rich variety we are privileged to live with, and a warning of how barren our world will be if we let this extinction wave run its course.'&o; David Brackett, Chair of IUCN's Species Survival Commission
