Going, Going, Gone?
Animals and plants on the brink of extinction and how you can help
Many scientists believe that we are on the brink of a new mass extinction, with at least a million species in danger of not making it through to the end of the century. One million species! How can we possibly turn this tide?
The answer lies in our own hands. Through conservation action, and by subtly reforming the ways in which we live, we can still give these plants and animals a chance.
In Going, Going, Gone?, the first book of its kind, 100 conservation organisations around the world each nominate the species that gives them most cause for concern. Between them, they provide an overview of the work that we need to do now to save these and the hundreds of thousands of other similarly placed species before they're gone.
The book contains:
•Two pages on each of 100 animals and plants that are specifically identified by the conservation organizations of the world as most under threat
•Fascinating facts about the wildlife, and what needs to be done in order to save it
Please help and support organisations that put their effort into saving these animals and their habitats. You can find information and beautiful images of many species including facts about these species, e.g. common name, scientific name, endangered status, population count, lifespan, range of living area and reasons of threats to these species in the book called "Going, Going, Gone?", by editor Malcolm Tait. We'd like to credit the images that we used from this book to help promote this important issue. You can find the images under Species. The book also features the work of 100 organisations and many amazing people that contribute to the protection and conservation of animal and plant species that are on the brink of extinction. We'd also like to thank the publisher Think Publishing for permission of use of images.
