Synopsis:

Birds of prey, otherwise known as raptors, have been respected and admired yet also feared and loathed throughout their existence. They are meat-eating birds and extremely well-equipped for the hunt, with powerful eyesight, ultra-sensitive hearing, and sharp talons. Despite these apparent advantages, many birds of prey species are seriously endangered or threatened.

This latest addition to the Firefly Animal Rescue series profiles the dedicated people and projects around the world helping raptors to survive, including:

  • The Philippine Eagle Foundation that is bringing the Philippine eagle back from the brink of extinction;
  • Lindsay Oaks, an American microbiologist, who helped discover what is killing vultures in Asia;
  • Sophie Osborn, who monitors released California condors;
  • The biologists using Peregrine falcons as "foster parents" for the young of the endangered South American aplomado falcon.

Illustrated with 50 spectacular color photographs, Birds of Prey Rescue also addresses the general biological issues and challenges in preserving a future for endangered wildlife.

About the Firefly Animal Rescue series:

The Firefly Animal Rescue identifies endangered and threatened species and what is being done to protect them. Combining lively, accessible text and stunning color photographs, each book provides a detailed overview of the species, describing its characteristics, behavior, habits, physiology and more.

"These attractive books are a call to action... fascinating readable accounts."
- School Library Journal

"Succinct introductions to the science and practice of wildlife conservation... written in accessible, lively language."
- Booklist
