Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

Profiles threatened animals around the world and discusses why they are in danger and what is being done to save them.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 8 Up. History mingles with contemporary information as readers are shown the tremendous impact that war, politics, and culture have had upon both the environment and the animals that share our planet. McClung begins with prehistoric time and a discussion of the evolution of humans and their fast emergence as the dominant species in their habitat. Over 100 animals are mentioned, dozens of them highlighted with pen-and-ink drawings and information on their physical attributes and behavior. Some are extinct, some are suspected to be extinct, some are extinct in the wild, some are severely endangered. Each continent is handled individually, with a natural, cultural, and political history setting the stage for the discussion of important species in that part of the world. Two major island groups and the oceans of the world receive similar treatment. McClung can be harsh in his criticism of human disregard for the environment, but he is not inaccurate and he does discuss current efforts to preserve, protect, and manage remaining animal populations, and to confront challenges to endangered species. This is a serious treatment of a subject that has been covered thoroughly in both individual books and encyclopedias, but its historical view gives depth to the subject. The book contains an extensive bibliography, many clear and informative maps, and a thorough index that includes scientific as well as common names.?Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough Public Library System, FL
