9781407556970: Endangered Animals: Species Facing Extinction and the Threats to Their Habitats

It is estimated that, over the past 500 years, approximately 1,500 animal species have disappeared from Earth, from the tiny dyeing poison frog from Central America to the huge aurochs that roamed European forests until the seventeenth century. Species extinction continues today: the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) list almost 30,000 immediately or potentially endangered animals in its latest Red List, and this number increases every year. With the aid of over 500 spectacular photographs, informative charts, and detailed maps, this book portrays numerous endangered animal species from all over the world, amoung them the basking shark, the poison-dart frog, the Indian gharial, the souther royal albatross, and the gorilla.
