Gorilla by Anna Claybourne


Gorilla by Anna Claybourne

Animals on the Edge takes a dramatic look at endangered animals around the world, and what is being done to help them. Each book focuses on a different species, taking the reader on a journey to learn about what is being done to help animals in danger, both in the wild and at the zoo. From investigating daily routines, such as how animals hunt and what they eat, to hard-hitting facts about the causes of species extinction in the wild and how conservation efforts and zoo programmes can help, these books are packed with exciting real-life tales and inside information as well as amazing photography throughout. Presented in a magazine style, through accessible chunks of information, and packed full of full-colour photos and graphics, this exciting, high-interest series will appeal to reluctant and able readers alike, with key links to the geography curriculum. Includes feature panels with animal stats, facts and real-life rescue stories as well as further information on what readers can do to get involved.
