Featuring a host of animals, from polar bears, to elephants and albatrosses, this book uses a new, dynamic format and sumptuous photographs, to explore each animal in the context of its habitat. The special features, such as flaps and pull-outs help the reader to get a sense of how each animal moves, hunts or migrates, and quick reference booklets and number icons explain clearly the reasons why the animals are threatened, how many are left, and what is being done to help them.The special items include: a researcher's-eye view of a mountain gorilla's day; fascinating fact cards on 6 types of crocodile; a handy guide to an elephant's favourite foods; and a pull-out booklet on endangered rhinos.
