Description

A Smithsonian collaboration–this journey of discovery through the animal kingdom, past and present, calls on us to educate ourselves and take action to save the amazing diversity of our planet. 
Every living creature contributes towards the richness and beauty of our planet. Each one has a reason to exist, from the giant panda to the pygmy possum, and if we lose them, it will be forever. Extinctopedia tells a complex story, not just of those who are extinct, but also of those in greatest peril, with explanations of what threatens their survival. It is also a story of hope – hope for animals who have been rediscovered, hope in the form of newly-discovered animals, and hope that we might hear the warning call and act to preserve the amazing biodiversity of our fragile planet for future generations to come. 

  • Read stories about animals that are no longer with us
  • Discover endangered animals at risk of extinction
  • Learn about organizations which aim to protect animal life
  • Find out about strategies for preserving biodiversity 
Extinctopedia provides a fascinating catalog of life on earth and encourages the reader to find ways of preserving the incredible diversity of species, so we may all thrive and life itself can endure on this amazing and beautiful planet.

I thought I was going to hate it when I opened the ebook and it was so small but honestly the information is great and in small blurbs you can read a little at a time. It has so much good information about the extinction lists and ratings for endangered and critical and so forth.

STUNNING illustrations. I absolutely loved the artwork. Incredibly fascinating information as well. It’s easy enough to understand through most of it but i appreciated that the author didn’t make it seem like it was actually written for a child. Well written and presented for sure!
