About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Spanish

Back from the Brink, written by leading international conservationists, presents species that have been saved from the "brink of extinction" through the resolve and collaborative initiatives of individuals, communities, organizations, and governments over the past decades.

Along with awe-inspiring photographs, the book presents in-depth profiles of 25 threatened species and in all includes the stories of nearly 100 species – some formerly believed extinct but now successfully rescued. The detailed information underscores the urgent need to work together to prevent further loss of nature's diversity and beauty and to mitigate the causes of climate change. As ongoing destruction, degradation, and fragmentation of the planet's natural ecosystems increase to make way for human populations, this volume clearly demonstrates every society's obligation to ensure the right balance between urban growth and natural ecosystems.

The beauty in these pages serves as an aspiration for our collective work and our shared future.
