In Endangered, the result of an extraordinary multiyear project to document the lives of threatened species, acclaimed photographer Tim Flach explores one of the most pressing issues of our time. Traveling around the world—to settings ranging from forest to savannah to the polar seas to the great coral reefs—Flach has constructed a powerful visual record of remarkable animals and ecosystems facing harsh challenges. Among them are primates coping with habitat loss, big cats in a losing battle with human settlements, elephants hunted for their ivory, and numer­ous bird species taken as pets. With eminent zoologist Jonathan Baillie providing insightful commentary on this ambitious project, Endangered unfolds as a series of vivid, interconnected stories that pose gripping moral dilemmas, unforgettably expressed by more than 180 of Flach’s incred­ible images.

For nearly seven years, Tobin reported from the front lines of Endangered Species Act battles. He criss-crossed the Southwest - America's hottest, driest and fastest-growing region - in search of wildlife driven to the brink of extinction and solutions to the crisis. Tobin discovered that this region, with its urban sprawl, wasteful water use and vulnerability to climate change, provides a snapshot of the issues facing species throughout the world. He also advocates a set of innovative policies that can preserve the species and wild places that sustain the population.

This book looks at the many animals and plants that have become endangered through hunting, poaching, pollution, habitat loss, and climate change. It also discusses the steps conservationists are taking to protect threatened species.
