The Lovereading4Kids comment

Many species in the world face extinction but can we humans do anything about it or are we perhaps the root cause? Find out what happened 65 million years ago when dinosaurs were wiped out and find out what species are on the way out now. This book tells you that if everyone does a little something to reset the ecological balance there’s a chance we can save some of the species on the brink now from becoming extinct.

Synopsis

Countdown To Extinction by David Burnie

Did you know... On the black market, a single elephant tusk can be worth over £10,000. A fifth of all primates are in danger.Without better protection the red squirrel will soon disappear. Smuggled birds often die before they reach their destination.
