At a time when animal species are becoming extinct on every continent and we are confronted with bad news about the environment nearly every day, Jane Goodall, one of the world's most renowned scientists, brings us inspiring news about the future of the animal kingdom. With the insatiable curiosity and conversational prose that have made her a bestselling author, Goodall-along with Cincinnati Zoo Director Thane Maynard-shares fascinating survival stories about the American Crocodile, the California Condor, the Black-Footed Ferret, and more; all formerly endangered species and species once on the verge of extinction whose populations are now being regenerated.

Interweaving her own first-hand experiences in the field with the compelling research of premier scientists, Goodall illuminates the heroic efforts of dedicated environmentalists and the truly critical need to protect the habitats of these beloved species. At once a celebration of the animal kingdom and a passionate call to arms, HOPE FOR ANIMALS THEIR WORLD presents an uplifting, hopeful message for the future of animal-human coexistence.

We always hear about all the animals that are going extinct by the minute but no one seems to talk about the animals and vegetation that has made its comeback from near extinction. In this book Jane Goodall and others have collected firsthand knowledge of people who have helped these creatures and foliage of our world make their way back. With many wonderful people there are numerous species being brought back from near extinction and even some animals and trees that have not been seen in hundreds of years. From the black footed ferret to the species of trees that has been around from the prehistoric age.

Being a big supporter of animal and environmental welfare I enjoyed this book immensely. Jane Goodall may be mostly known for her time living with the chimpanzees but she has done much more for our planet. It was great to listen to her talk about all of the people who care as much as her for the many species that are dying. Caring enough to do something about it, from volunteering to studying and nurturing the animals and foliage to bring them back to what they once were. This is a long audio book. 11 cds in all, not a quick listen but a great one if you are interested in hearing all the good that comes from the hard work done by these special people. As you listen to the stories of these dedicated people restoring habitats and helping in any way that they can to restore the earth to what it once was the listener finds hope. Hope that we as humans still can and do care about the world we live in.

This audio book comes with a special bonus pdf, which includes photos and resources as well as a section titled “What You Can Do”. Not only do you get to listen and see just what these generous and heartfelt people do it gives you ideas to help you do your own things to help our world and those that live in it.
