Anecdotes from the Wild

Length: 61 pages42 minutes


One theme common to each of the conservation stories in this collection is that of small creatures whose environment is challenged by change. The change is usually as the result of modifications to their traditional habitats, both incremental and sudden; for example the removal of forest cover or overfishing. As a result, the animals are usually forced to change their lives. But because so many of the small creatures develop a certain affection in the reader and because they often modify the behaviour of the perpetrators of the change in their lives - mankind- the stories promote empathy for preserving original habitats.
The stories are eminently readable and appeal to young readers and adults.
