Description

Bradley Trevor Greive, author of the international bestsellers The Blue Day Book, The Meaning of Life, Dear Mom, and Looking for Mr. Right, joins award-winning photographer Mitsuaki Iwago in a work that will shine a bright light on the countless animals of our planet Earth that are endangered or whose habitats are shrinking. The book's touching message of conservation provides a welcome perspective on the web of life that connects us all. Everyone has heard about animals that are now extinct. But author Bradley Trevor Greive wants everyone to leam about animals that can be saved - and then to do something about it. In inspiring narrative and striking photographs of everything from humpback whales to pigmy possums to African spoonbills, Greive and wildlife photographer Mitsuaki Iwago spell out Earth's diverse animal inventory. They highlight species that once were plentiful but now are scarce - some that are now sadly extinct - and point out specific dangers that other animals face. The authors also present a call to action: "To preserve our home and the priceless creatures that dwell within it you need only see the world as it is and have a vision of how it could be." Priceless is a must-have book for everyone interested in the environment, biodiversity, and in all life on Earthshow more
