Time is running out… read about the threats to our wildlife, and what you can do to help! Around the world every day hundreds of species of animals are becoming endangered, and many more are likely to become extinct in the wild unless we do something to help them. This app focuses on 150 of the animals listed on the IUCN Red List, the internationally recognized list of the world’s most endangered species. The animals included have been selected to give an overview of the wide range of species whose future survival is now in doubt—from the iconic African elephant, to the little-known axolotl. Each card highlights the threats facing a particular animal, and outlines how varied these threats are—from habitat loss and global warming, to pollution and civil war. Web-links to conservation groups and projects around the world will help you to learn more about your favorite animal, and provide you with information about what you can do to help. Written by experienced children’s authors with a specialist knowledge and interest in natural history. EACH CARD INCLUDES: • A descriptive profile of the animal, its habitat, characteristics, life span, how many left in the wild and Red List status. • Information about the main threats to its future, and what is being done internationally to help endangered species. • Web-links to specific organizations and projects that are helping that animal. • “Did you know?” facts for each animal. ADDITIONAL FEATURES: • The cards are listed alphabetically, by animal type and by Red List status • Each animal name is recorded for help with pronunciation • A powerful search engine for instant access to the topics you want to read about • Fantastic photographs with ability to zoom in to see the details • Maps of the world and habitats • Easy-to-use, comprehensive glossary WHAT YOU CAN DO ON THIS APP: • Record your own voice notes or animal noise • Bookmark your favorite cards • Make written notes • Keep track of the cards you have read • Press on a word for a dictionary definition
