Presented in a magazine style, through accessible chunks o finformation, 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.
