Chinese egrets, humpback whales, Chinook salmon, and manatees might seem to have little in common, but they do—they are all close to extinction. They, and several other animals, have decreased in numbers due to over-hunting and elimination of their habitats. Through beautiful illustrations, poetry, and essays, understand what is happening, and what still needs to be done, to save these animals.
