The incredible rate at which various animals and plants are disappearing from the planet is shocking. Scientists believe that habitats across the globe are losing dozens of species every day.

Jane Goodall, who has become one of the standard-bearers for animal conservation through her numerous books, television programs and intimate work with animals, is nonetheless defiant - 'While there is life there is hope', she states in her introduction to this profound and uplifting book.

Working in very demanding natural and political environments, conservationists risk their lives to save animals from the brink of extinction. Jane's unique access takes us inside these programs, meeting first-hand a vast range of animals from Giant Pandas in China to the young generation of Whooping Cranes in Texas that are being taught new migration routes - led by human devotees in flying machines.

The book includes some special Australian and New Zealand stories, including the Australian Mala or Rufous Hare-wallaby which came back from the brink of extinction through a dedicated breeding program, and the heart-warming story of how one man's novel approach and his work with a very special pair of birds saved New Zealand's beloved Black Robin.

Hope for Animals and Their World is a truly uplifting and energising celebration of the great work being done to protect our wildlife for future generations. Goodall's message rings loud and clear: we must not give up.
