Subtitle A first book about protecting nature
This fascinating and beautifully illustrated book spans the complete length and breadth of the topic of conservation, which is more important today than ever before.
Combining history with science, this deeply insightful book charts the changes in our understanding and relationship with conservation, from the beginnings of the planet when humans didn’t consider their impact on their surroundings, to the modern world and what we can do to protect our natural resources today.
Earth’s natural resources include air, minerals, plants, soil, water, and wildlife. Conservation is the care and protection of these resources so that they can persist for future generations. It includes maintaining diversity of species, genes, and ecosystems, as well as functions of the environment, such as nutrient cycling.
As well as discovering the effects conservation could have across the world, this book will help you discover practical ways we can work together to help protect our resources for our future generations.
With fact-packed text by Catherine Barr and Steve Williams and vibrant illustrations by Amy Husband, this next title in the best-selling Story of... series is all about shifting attitudes to our natural world and will give children the information they need to inspire them to protect our precious planet.
