Staff Review: "Going, Going, Gone"
This 2013 release showcases 100 plants and animals around the globe that are threatened with extinction. Compelling full-color images of each species is complimented by a one-page write-up with a general overview of the species, basic data on remaining numbers/lifespans/threats along with efforts underway to save it along and information on what individuals can do to help. Among the species depicted are North Atlantic Right Whales, Sumatran Tigers, Javan Leaf Monkeys, Pygmy Hogs, Natterjack Toads, Hawaiian Cotton Trees, Polar Bears, Ethiopian Wolves, Blue-Throated Macaws and Siamese Crocodiles. GOING, GOING, GONE is both a beautiful, compelling photo-book and an 11th-hour wake-up call for action.
