About this deal

He is co-author of the World Health Organization's award-winning Inheriting the World: The Atlas of Children's Health and the Environment. There are currently 41,415 listed endangered vertebrate species, and over 16,000 of them are threatened with extinction. 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.

An Atlas of Endangered Species shows us that the battle is on for their survival - and we all have a part to play. 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.

A really brilliant insight into an array of endangered species with a fantastic mix of facts and real life experiences.

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. 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. Sharks can navigate the ocean using electromagnetic fields; sloths use algae as camouflage; albatross can fly for hours without beating their wings; and orca pods each have unique cultures and languages. 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. An Atlas of Endangered Species is a masterpiece of scientific communication - Dr Ruth Tingay, Co-Director, Wild Justice You may also be interested in.

Vividly presented through full-colour maps and graphics, this fully revised and updated atlas profiles species lost, threatened and surviving today. It examines different ecosystems, the major threats to their inhabitants and steps being taken towards conservation. 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.

Pretty sound balance in coupling her own experiences with the essential facts for each of the species that are covered.Most well-known for presenting the BAFTA award-winning BBC Springwatch series and Animal Park , Megan is a passionate science communicator and biodiversity activist. Drawing from the testimony of scientists, conservationists and rangers, this beautiful and important volume explores the countless extraordinary species facing extinction and maps a hopeful path to changing our perception and appreciation of the natural world.
