Endangered animals

How to Save a Species
by Marilyn Baillie, Jonathan Baillie, and Ellen Butcher

This slim volume offers a concise look at 17 endangered species and what is being done to save them. Some of the species featured may be unknown to many readers, such as the black robin, cebu frill-wing (an insect), luristan newt, and northern muriqui (a spider monkey). Endangered plants - the wild yam and Attenborough's pitcher plant - are also mentioned.

Visually appealing and clearly written, the book is a good introduction to the diversity of life on Earth.
