About this book

Portfolio of colour plates illustrating over 100 mammals, birds, and reptiles that have recently vanished or become extinct. Included are the mammoth Steller's sea cow that roamed Pacific waters including Monterey Bay in California, the tiny Brace's emerald hummingbird of the Bahamas, and the lesser bilby that disappeared from central Australia just 50 years ago. A short synopsis of what is known about each animal's life and the circumstances surrounding its extinction accompanies each image.
