Synopsis

Tiger Rescue Changing the Future for Endangered Wildlife by Dan Bortolotti

A century ago, 100,000 tigers roamed the forests of Asia. Today, only a few thousand remain, thanks to shrinking habitat and a lucrative trade in tiger parts. Firefly Animal Rescue is a new series of books about endangered and threatened species and what is being done to protect them. It is aimed at readers aged 10 and up with accessible text and color photographs. Each book introduces readers to a featured animal, explains the threats it is facing, and explores efforts to protect it. Young readers will be inspired by the leading scientists and conservationists who work in the field, in labs and on the public stage. The books conclude with additional resources for those who want to help. Tiger Rescue takes readers to India, where whole villages are being moved to make room for tigers; to the Russian Far East, where rangers risk their lives to stop poachers supplying the black market in Asian medicines; and to the forests of Malaysia and Sumatra, where farmers and tigers struggle to share the land. Along the way, some of the world's top tiger conservationists show that hard work and determination can bring this mighty cat back from the brink. About the Firefly Animal Rescue series: The Firefly Animal Rescue identifies endangered and threatened species and what is being done to protect them. Combining lively, accessible text and stunning color photographs, each book provides a detailed overview of the species, describing its characteristics, behavior, habits, physiology and more. These attractive books are a call to action... fascinating readable accounts. - School Library Journal Succinct introductions to the science and practice of wildlife conservation... written in accessible, lively language. - Booklist

Reviews

Engaging text, stunning photographs... The text is clear, relatively easy to read and gives very good depth without being ponderous... highly recommended.--Linda Irvine Resource Links (02/01/2004)
