Atlas of Endangered Animals
Size 9 × 13 in | 88 pages | hardbinding
This book provides both a wake-up call and hope. If we behave responsibly toward nature, these species can still be saved.
We are born, we live, we die, and we loot our planet. We pollute it, mine it, cut down forests, and transform them into arable land. We pump out groundwater as well as raw materials . . . Entire lines of threatened species, however, are dying before our eyes. Do we want to continue like this? Atlas of Endangered Animals maps out the dangers that specific threatened species face. The writer Radek Malý encourages people to think about their actions. The ambitiously conceived atlas is accompanied by remarkable fullpage illustrations by Pavel Dvorský, supplemented by scientific illustrations by his wife Pavla Dvorská. These are stories of forty species whose ongoing existence rests in our hands.
