Megan McCubbin – An Atlas of Endangered Species

There are currently 41,415 listed endangered species, and over 16,000 of them are threatened with extinction.

Zoologist and BBC Springwatch presenter Megan McCubbin looks at 20 of these amazing creatures, from the ‘celebrities’ of the red list – the tigers, the northern white rhino, the kakapo – to the lesser-known, and sometimes less loved species. McCubbin vividly paints a portrait of them, their world and the people trying to protect them.

An Atlas of Endangered Animals is a beautifully illustrated, fascinating and important document of an incredible world at risk, and, just maybe, a handbook for restoring it.

Chaired by Simon Pryde
