‘Jane Goodall’s book has demonstrated all manner of brave, messy, patient, self-sacrificing and occasionally rather barmy-sounding behaviour in their battle to preserve the Earth’s biodiversity.’
World-renowned scientist, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and a UN Messenger of Peace, Dr Jane Goodall DBE offers an optimistic message of hope for animal species and natural environments throughout the world.
HOPE FOR ANIMALS AND THEIR WORLD is Dr Jane Goodall’s inspirational and engaging account of the efforts of environmental researchers and conservationists from around the world to combat, against all odds, terrifying rates of species extinction. Presented as a collection of stories in five parts, she provides unique access to, and first-hand accounts from men and women who have often risked their lives to rescue and nurture endangered species, and who refuse to give up.
Jane Goodall’s book contains remarkable tales and concludes with accounts of ongoing habitat conservation from around the globe, an examination of why the protection of species is essential to humans, and examples of how concerned amateurs, and especially young people, can become involved and contribute to the good health of the planet.
HOPE FOR ANIMALS AND THEIR WORLD also includes stunning full-colour photographs of these rare creatures and is as satisfying, informative and stirring as a David Attenborough documentary.
