HASH(0x97118024) von 5 Sternen Beautiful, informative book to learn about the science of saving endangered species 26. August 2013
Von A. V. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Although this book is non-fiction aimed at young people, it is set up by the authors as a mystery thriller complete with fascinating cast of characters, suspense, and the excitement of the chase. The remote and nature-rich Pantanal wetland of South America is explored with beautiful photos and revealing descriptions. The book explains what tapirs are, where they live, a little of their history, and how they are related to other animals. We learn why they are endangered, and why it is so important and challenging to study them.

Both traditional and cutting edge scientific methods are used used to study the tapirs and these are also explained in the book. The woman who leads the study, Patricia Medici, is an inspiring role model for any young, aspiring natural scientist.

Highly recommended for 5th grade and above. Adults interested in nature and endangered species will also enjoy it. It makes for a wonderful coffee table book/conversation piece as well.

Von Flalamingo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Read all about tapirs; what they eat, how they live, and where they live (etc). The most funny looking mammals (they're a little cute too!). Browse through the members of the tapir scientists group and how they got interested in tapirs and saving animals.
What I liked about this book:The great photographs and stories.
What I disliked about this book:The two men who killed animals when they were kids.
