Protecting Animal Pathways Around the World
By Catherine Barr
Illustrated by Christiane Engel
An important and unique information book based on the latest scientific research, showing how people across the world are creating ‘wildlife corridors’ to help animals move safely between wildlife areas
Our planet is criss-crossed by a network of ancient pathways, reflecting the journeys of millions of animal species in search of food, water, safety and mates.
But human development is blocking these vital ‘ribbons of life’. Animal habitats are shrinking into isolated and unconnected patches of nature.
Track the journeys of seven amazing animals. Discover why they are in trouble, follow their journeys and find out how scientists and campaigners across the world are creating ‘wildlife corridors’ to keep animals safe and on the move.
