Includes bibliographical references (pages 158-162) and index.
Formatted Contents Note:
The path to preservation -- Whooping cranes in the wetlands -- Wolves in the wild -- Bald eagles fly high -- Giant Galápagos tortoises walk the earth -- California condors soar again -- American alligators swim in the south -- American bison : give me a home where the buffalo roam -- Call to action!
Summary, etc.:
"How could capturing the last wild California condors help save them? Why are some states planning to cull populations of the gray wolf, despite this species only recently making it off the endangered list? How did a decision made during the Civil War to use alligator skin for cheap boots nearly drive the animal to extinction? Back from the Brink answers these questions and more as it delves into the threats to seven species, and the scientific and political efforts to coax them back from the brink of extinction. This...informational look at the problem of extinction has a hopeful tone: all of these animals' numbers are now on the rise."--Amazon.com.
