My Best Book of Extinct Animals
From sea bass to Siberian tigers, this title is a superb introduction to creatures that are either extinct, such as the dodo, or that could be soon. Discover the many fascinating species that are under threat. Explore some of the wildest habitats on earth, and find out more about a variety of endangered animals. But being classed as endangered does not always mean the species dies out. Many animals, such as the bald eagle, were on the brink of extinction and are now recovering. This new, optimistic chapter in the story is also explored.
