New Title

1) Anonymous. Going, Going, Gone: 100 animals and plants on the verge of extinction. 2013. Bloomsbury. Hardbound: 223 pages. Price: $34.00 U.S.
PUBLISHER'S SUMMARY: We asked 100 conservation groups around the world: 'if you could pick one species that epitomises your work, which would it be?' From the RSPB to WWF to the Cheetah Conservation Fund, and many, many more, the answers came rolling in. Each provided a synopsis of the threats faced by their selected species, a summary of their degree of threat, an outline of the work being done to save them, and a number of ways in which the reader could help to conserve that species.
      With beautiful full-page photographs of each of the 100 species, this is a book that will both fascinate and educate and, hopefully, help to secure the future of the threatened animals and plants that it showcases.
RECOMMENDATION: A well illustrated introduction to endangered species.
