Invaders PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Invaders free pdf New Zealand is under attack! The 'invaders' of the title are the animals from overseas that have made New Zealand their home - often by human hand and usually with disastrous consequences for the local wildlife. Some of the best-loved newcomers are the worst offenders - cats, mice, hedgehogs, dogs, possums - and between them they have snuffed out untold numbers of native animals and plants. This book dishes out home truths and fascinating insights that will encourage children to take a fresh look at the environment and how to protect it. The book also features approximately 100 full-colour photographs. This title is the first in a new series of books for 9-14-year-olds, using a fresh approach to present major themes in animal ecology and behaviour.
