Discusses why animals are such an important resource, describes the damage being done to them by current practices, and introduces things that can be done to protect them.

Facts on File
During the course of millions of years, animals have adapted to various environments on Earth. Although animals have evolved over geologic time to Earth's constantly changing environments, and although the extinctions of certain species are normal, in no other time in the planet's history has the extinction rate climbed as high as it is today. Causes of this unprecedented extinction rate include destruction of wildlife habitat, pollution, overfishing, and poaching. Animals illustrates these urgent issues in a manner accessible to middle and high school readers.

Coverage includes:
  • The causes and rates of extinction and what the true costs are
  • The diverse and unique uses and contributions of animals and how they affect our daily lives
  • The future of animals and how everyone can help create and provide animal habitats for subsequent generations to enjoy.
