Hope for Animals and Their World PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Hope for Animals and Their World free pdf At a time when animal species are becoming extinct on every continent and we are confronted with bad news about the environment nearly every day, Jane Goodall, one of the world's most renowned scientists, brings us new hope for the future of the animal kingdom. With the insatiable curiosity and conversational prose that have made her a bestselling author, Goodall - along with zoo director Thane Maynard and co-author Gail Hudson - reveals fascinating survival stories about formerly endangered species whose populations are now recovering. Discover such incredible cases as: the return of the rare Pere David's deer, bred at Woburn Abbey, to their ancestral home in China- magnificent short-tailed albatrosses, whose population plummeted to under 100, and the dedicated scientist who risked his life on remote, mountainous islands to save them- the tahki or Przewalski's horse, native to Mongolia's high desert grasslands, which became extinct in the wild in 1968 with only a handful existing in European zoos for decades, before being reintroduced to its native homeland in the 1990s- and, a giant stick insect rediscovered on a South Pacific island in 2001 - after being presumed extinct for almost a century. Goodall illuminates the heroic efforts of dedicated field biologists and the critical need to protect and restore the habitats of these irreplaceable species. At once a celebration of the animal kingdom and a passionate call to arms, "Hope for Animals and Their World" presents an uplifting, motivating message for the future of animal-human coexistence.
