Description


A great introduction to the world's changing habitats and the growing threats to wildlife, with positive suggestions to enable readers to make a difference,

Our actions are threatening wildlife and habitats across the world. Discover the ways in which marine and land animals are being affected by humans, from climate change and pollution to activities such as mining and agriculture. Featuring habitats across the world, such as the rainforests, coral reefs, mountains and polar places, the book explores how they are changing and the ways in which this is endangering wildlife.

The environment and our impact on it is a hugely topical subject, especially among young people, who are participating in protests and action around the world. Containing positive project ideas and suggestions for ways to be greener, Hazardous Habitats and Endangered Animals is an engaging introduction to the topic.

Contents include:

Introduction explains what habitats are, and the main threats to them from human population growth, actions such as mining and agriculture, climate change and pollution.

Discusses forest, grassland, ocean, mountain and polar habitats, the animals that live in them and the particular challenges they face.
