Many scientists believe that we are on the brink of a new mass extinction, with at least a million species in danger of not making it through to the end of the century. One million species! How can we possibly turn this tide? The answer lies in our own hands. Through conservation action, and by subtly reforming the ways in which we live, we can still give these plants and animals a chance.
In "Going, Going, Gone", the first book of its kind, 100 conservation organisations around the world each nominate the species that gives them most cause for concern. Between them, they provide an overview of the work that we need to do now to save these and the hundreds of thousands of other similarly placed species before they're gone. The book contains: two pages on each of 100 animals and plants that are specifically identified by the conservation organizations of the world as most under threat; magnificent photography; fascinating facts about the wildlife, and what needs to be done in order to save it; and complete contact details of the world's leading conservation organisations.
