Lost Species

£14.99

From the awe-inspiring woolly mammoth and the ferocious Spinosaurus to the shy Chinese river dolphin and incredibly rare Pinta Island tortoise ‘Lonesome George’, meet 35 extinct species and discover how these creatures came under threat. Featuring additional information on ‘Lazarus species’ (animals declared extinct but which, amazingly, have been rediscovered in the wild), and mass extinction events, including the part we are playing in endangering our wildlife, the book shows young readers that extinction is not simply a part of ancient history – it is happening right now across the planet – but that if we all make some small changes to our lifestyles, our wonderful species can be saved.
