About this deal

This book takes just 20 of these amazing creatures, from the 'celebrities' of the red list - the tigers, the northern white rhino, the kakapo - to the lesser-known, and sometimes lesser loved ones, and paints a portrait of them, their world, and the people trying to protect them. Become a member and you can be an invaluable part of our mission to conserve birds of prey while enjoying as many visits to the Hawk Conservancy Trust as you like – plus many other benefits! A keen photographer, in 2019 she was appointed as the coordinator and judge of Young Bird Photographer of the Year. The diversity of life on earth is astounding, with each species perfectly adapted to its environment.

She most recently presented Springwatch, alongside Chris Packham, and is the founder of The Self-Isolating Bird Club on twitter, and co-founder of Wildlife Rebellion. A really brilliant insight into an array of endangered species with a fantastic mix of facts and real life experiences.An Atlas of Endangered Animals' is a beautifully illustrated, fascinating and important document of an incredible world at risk, and, just maybe, a handbook for restoring it. Not only is Atlas of Endangered Species a fascinating, immersive exploration of iconic and overlooked species, but most importantly it's a powerful, passionate plea for a wilder future alongside nature. Megan does seem to try not to paint too bleak a picture, but I’m afraid I was left feeling that despite the courageous work of the many individuals that she introduces us to in the book, who are fighting to preserve the featured species, it is all ultimately going to prove to be too little, too late.

Although the book was excellent I found myself feeling a bit doom and gloom after reading it, especially as I finished it a day after the UK PM pushing back on some of the UK green commitments. Also included is one plant species, an orchid, making me aware of the practice of plant poaching, which is making many species of plant similarly in danger of extinction. It examines different ecosystems, the major threats to their inhabitants and steps being taken towards conservation. Her interest stems from a childhood growing up in and around the Isle of Wight Zoo, which specialises in the rescue and rehabilitation of ex-circus and pet trade animals.We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.
