Rewilding : Bringing Wildlife Back Where It BelongsBy
A collection of conservation stories looking at rewilding—the process of returning animals and plants to habitats where they once thrived.
Discover inspiring stories of wildlife brought back from the brink of extinction.
In this book, conservation biologist David A. Steen introduces children to the scientists determined to turn back the hands of time to create a greener future. Read about awe-inspiring rewilding projects, including:
• The wolves that returned to Yellowstone National Park and dramatically improved the ecosystem
• The beavers reintroduced to their old territories to build dams to stop them flooding
• The Galápagos giant tortoises who beat the odds to survive extinction and return to their island home
Readers will learn how different species evolved to live side by side and see what it takes to be a conservation scientist. By the end of the book they will be left with a key message: it’s not too late to fix the planet.
