The clock is ticking: Can it be stopped? Many scientists believe that we are on the brink of a new mass extinction, with at least one million species in danger of not surviving to the end of the century. But there is still an opportunity to turn the tide, to change the way we live and give these creatures a chance. In the very first book of its kind, 100 conservation organizations from around the world each nominate a species—animal or plant—that it believes is most threatened. Every one selected receives a two-page spread, with magnificent photography, fascinating facts, details on why it is endangered, and information on how we can save it. Plus: complete contact details for the featured organizations.
