About this deal

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.

Much like her presenting style, Megan McCubbin's writing has an effortless appeal to a diverse audience, from the curious child to the most seasoned of conservationists. 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.

We also use them to help detect unauthorized access or activity that violate our terms of service, as well as to analyze site traffic and performance for our own site improvement efforts. 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. With a third mass extinction on our doorstep, it's also very timely, and I'm delighted to see that it's been written by one of the foremost of the generation of new, young naturalists that are helping to change our perception and appreciation of the natural world. She most recently presented Winterwatch alongside Chris Packham, is the founder of The Self-Isolating Bird Club on Twitter, and co-founder of Wildlife Rebellion.

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.Pretty sound balance in coupling her own experiences with the essential facts for each of the species that are covered. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. A keen photographer, in 2019 she was appointed as the coordinator and judge of Young Bird Photographer of the Year. 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.

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. There are currently 41,415 listed endangered vertebrate species, and over 16,000 of them are threatened with extinction.

Packed full of wonderful pictures and deep insights into the lives of the beautiful plants and creatures the planet is in grave danger of losing - don't miss this book!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.

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. Beautifully written, capturing the wonder and personality of each creature, big and small perfectly. A really brilliant insight into an array of endangered species with a fantastic mix of facts and real life experiences.
