Australia’s wild creatures are facing a fast-changing environment that has humankind’s fingerprint all over it and hundreds are in danger of complete extinction. We can’t save what we don’t know or understand: awareness is paramount to helping these endangered creatures survive into the lifetimes of future generations. Myke Mollards signature illustrations and engaging text bring kids up close and personal with 134 of Australia’s most endangered creatures, highlighting both the common and uncommon threats to each species and revealing the fragile balance existing in nature and how our human impact is collapsing ecosystems and unbalancing the natural world. While some of these creatures may be iconic and well-studied, many of them are less known: all have their plight, beauty and character delicately presented in this important new book.
