"The news about biodiversity isn't good… yet Jane Goodall, primatologist and ethologist, refuses to despair, and Hope for Animals is her warrior cry… it soars above even the most interesting of Goodall's previous books because this time, she is writing for the life of the planet… gorgeously illustrated and dense with compelling stories organized into six thematic parts… Hope for Animals is intensely moving and Goodall's measured prose conveys urgency and crisis without panic" (Globe and Mail). Co-authored with Thane Maynard and Gail Hudson. With extensive appendix titled, "What You Can Do."
A fine signed copy.
